RATIONALE FOR CHANGES

The Assessment Framework set out a number changes to the assessment regulations for 2012/13 and 2013/14.

These aim to:

  • simplify, rationalise and sharpen regulations governing assessment to introduce greater clarity for students, and greater clarity in the University's communications with students on deferral and referral
  • address and remedy an assessment culture which is widely perceived as being too dependent on deferral, referral and mixed-level study, and therefore expensive to administrate, over-bureaucratic, and onerous for students
  • produce a culture which incentivises passing at first attempt
  • allow compensation to bring the University in line with the sector
