The final examination is a hurdle requirement because it is the only reliable assessment of individual performance for this unit. A grade of 45% or more in the final examination is a condition of passing this unit. If you are given a second opportunity to sit the final examination as a result of failing to meet the minimum mark required, you will be offered that chance during the supplementary examination period and will be notified of the exact day and time after the publication of final results for the unit. The second attempt at a hurdle assessment is graded as pass fail. The maximum grade for a second attempt is the hurdle threshold grade.
Participation in 10 tutorial sessions is a hurdle requirement. Note that tutorials will start in week 2.
