Succeeding as a Student

 Managing Assessment

 Passing Modules

 Getting Your Degree/Diploma

your registered programme
Your Registered Programme
  • Each semester you will be asked to confirm the modules that you are taking and can seek advice from your Personal Academic Adviser about choices that are available to you.
  • A full-time student will normally take 4 modules (60 credits) in each semester; a part-time student will take 1, 2 or 3 modules each semester (15-45 credits).
  • You must hand in all items of coursework assessment and attend all exams for your registered programme otherwise you will not be able to complete your course on-time, would incur further debt and in some cases may have to repay student loans to which you would no longer be entitled.
attending classes
Attending Classes
  • If you are a new student at Certificate Level then every module in your programme will have at least one timetabled class per week. Attendance is monitored by the University via turnstiles and by class registers and you are expected to attend all classes.
  • These will appear on the personal timetable that your UG Centre gives you later this week.
  • The University understands that some students work part-time to support themselves; this must be arranged around your classes and you should be aware that part-time work beyond about 15 hours per week is likely to affect your success.
  • In order to reduce the need for students to work, the University has a programme of grants to students called 'bursaries'; these are not loans and do not need to be repaid. Typical bursaries range from £300 to £1000 per year, the amount depending on your circumstances.
  • All eligible students (sorry - bursaries are not available to International students) should apply as soon as possible. See http://www.londonmet.ac.uk/londonmet/library/v52034_3.pdf.
  • 'Home' students claim their bursary through completing form PN1 and sending to the Student Loans Company. Some EU funded students are also eligible for support.
  • Payment of bursaries is in instalments and is conditional on you attending classes and handing in all assignments.
how assessment works


How Assessment Works
  • Each student has a programme of modules for each semester of study
  • Each module has assessment tasks:
    • exams, essays, in-class tests, presentations, portfolios
  • The marks for each assessment task are combined together to produce the outcome
    • normally 40% pass mark for undergraduate modules.
    • required to attempt all items of assessment.
when will my assessments happen


When will my assessments happen?
  • Coursework (essays, class tests etc) will need to be done during the semester; details of timings are in the Module Booklet and at http://evision.londonmet.ac.uk.
  • Exams take place between
    • 12th January and 30th January (Autumn Semester)
    • 11th May and 28th May (Spring Semester)
  • If you attend regularly but fail a module you will normally be able to do a re-assessment (repeating the assignments you did not pass) during July/August.
  • HOWEVER, if you pass a module after doing a re-assessment, your mark for that module will be recorded as only 40%.
how do i hand in my work


How do I hand in my work?
  • All essays and other similar assignments are handed in to the Undergraduate Registry closest to where you study:
    • Room M132 Tower Building, North Campus
    • Room G12 Calcutta House, City Campus
    • Room MG101 Moorgate Building, City Campus
    • LHG20 Ladbroke House, North Campus
  • You will need to attach a 'coursework coversheet' to each submission. You should print these from your University account (http://evision.londonmet.ac.uk) and the barcode on your coversheet will allow you to track the receipt of your work – receipts will also be visible on your Evision account.
  • Essays and similar coursework must not be handed in during classes or to other offices. Local arrangements may exist for lab books/workshop portfolios and artefacts.
managing deadlines
Managing Deadlines
  • At the start of each semester you need to plan your workload so that you are able to submit all work on time and attend your exams. Late submission (up to two weeks after the deadline) will result in a penalty being applied and the result of the module will be capped at 40%. Work submitted after the two week period will not be marked.
  • If your ability to hand in work on time is seriously affected by illness etc you may be able to make a claim under the University's procedure called 'Mitigating Circumstances' and if you meet the criteria you will receive an unpenalised mark.
  • It is not possible for Module Leaders to give extensions to deadlines.
examination timetable


Examination Timetable
  • Exam dates are published during week 11 of the semester (final week of the Autumn Term in this semester);
  • Can be found on noticeboards and via the web (see http://www.londonmet.ac.uk/examtrack/; important to check before you leave for Xmas vacation and report any clashes;
  • Exams may be scheduled at any of the university’s sites or in external accommodation.
succeeding as a student1


Succeeding as a Student
  • Some modules specify that you must pass all the components of assessment and if so this will be stated in your Module Booklet. In most modules, though, it is sufficient to obtain a mark of 40% overall.
  • If you are unsure whether your work is good enough to pass, seek the advice of your Module Leader or use the facilities of the Learning Development Unit.
  • Remember that if you stop attending classes or don't hand in assignments then you will not be able to complete your course on time and may be asked to leave your course.
completing certificate level


Completing Certificate Level
  • As described above, you can only compete the Certificate Level (first year) of your course if you attend regularly and submit all your assignments/attend examinations. In addition, to complete the Certificate Level you must also:
    • Pass at least 6 of your 8 modules; you must also obtain a mark of at least 25% in the 7th and 8th modules.
    • Pass any modules that are specially identified for your course (see Course Handbook);
  • University looks at your profile in July and again in September after re-assessments.
  • If you don’t pass enough modules you will have to repeat all or part of your first year before moving on. You may even be asked to leave the University.
