The Guide to Assessment, Standards, Marking and Feedback is revised annually for the start of the new academic year. Certain revisions may need the approval of the Standing Committee on Assessment (SCA) and the University Teaching Committee. Departments will be notified of these changes via a memo from SCA.
Any revisions or in-year changes will be published here and Departments will be notified. We advise you to regularly check for online updates if you use a hard copy of the Guide.
Any matters you may wish to raise as you use the guide throughout the year should be sent to the Secretary to SCA at email@example.com.
