Part I Mark Scheme

The overall mark scheme for the First Year (Part I of the Degree), can be found in the course information page.

See the Exams Advice Page for the criteria for passing Part I.

See the Departmental Regulations for more details on the Degree Regulations and Marks Schemes.

Continuous assessment is an essential aspect of the course - it consolidates your understanding of taught material to equip you for the written examinations, and it has its own thresholds which you have to satisfy to pass the year as a whole. Treat it very seriously.

You must keep your continuous assessment work in good order after it has been returned to you from marking, because in the Summer term you will be asked to return it all to the SAO so that it may be formally inspected by the visiting external examiners.


Individual coursework exercises are set for all modules. The submission deadlines are set out on the CATe system, and late coursework will not be accepted unless an extension has been agreed.
