BSc (Hons) Financial Management* Course Assessment Strategy
For our BSc (Hons) Business Management and BSc (Hons) Financial Management courses, we have set out the assessment strategy throughout the three year duration for both courses:
You will be assessed through 70% examination (2 hours) and a 30% coursework (900 words). The coursework will consist of a case study or presentation, or both, depending on the unique nature of the module being delivered.
You will be assessed by 50% examination (1.5 hours) and 50% coursework (1500 words). The coursework will consist of a case study, report or presentation, or a mixture of all three, depending on the unique nature of the module being delivered.
You will be assessed through 35% examination (1hours) and 65% coursework (1800 words). The coursework will consist of a case study, report or presentation, or a mixture of all three, depending on the unique nature of the module being delivered.
The two research based project modules for year 3 (level 6) will be assessed through a project worth 100%. This will include: Project Plan (20%) (1600 words) (Weeks 8), individual project presentation (10%) (Week 14) (Lasting up to 10 minutes) and the Final Project submission (70%) (3000 words) (Week 15).
The Research Methods module delivered at level 6 will be assessed through a Group Presentation (50%) and 1.5 hours examination (50%), with the research methods tools and knowledge of the tools being assessed in the research based Project modules.
All coursework and any non-examination based assessments will be assessed to a general structure shown below subject to module specification.
