Continuous Assessment and Exams All School modules in first year (and most in later years) are assessed by a mixture of continuous assessment (= in-class tests, homeworks, etc.) and a final exam in May. Details can be found in the Book of Modules, and from your lecturer! If you miss a test for a good reason then let us know!!!
