Continuous assessments are worth 60% of the final grade.
Case studies are worth 40% of the final grade.
Note: If you choose to study under the “Personal” status, you do not need to take exams.
If you fail:
You must get a grade of 70% to pass a course. As in many other institutions, if you fail, you have a second chance. After two failures, if your grade is high enough (70% or more), you will have to retake the entire course and resubmit another exam. If your average is below 70%, your tutor will contact you about a possible change in program or orientation.
