how does unisa year mark work
Year-mark and final examination mark
The year-mark contribution towards the final examination mark is calculated as follows:
50% of the mark obtained for assignment 01
50% of the mark obtained for assignment 02
If you only submit assignment 01, your year mark will be 50% of the mark obtained for this assignment. This will then be your year mark out of a possible 100%. If, for example, you obtain 80% for assignment 01 and 0% for assignment 02, your year mark will be 40%.
According to university policy you require a sub-minimum of 40% in the examination before your year mark is taken into consideration. In other words, if you do not obtain at least 40% in the examination, you will automatically fail, and your final mark will be the mark you obtained in the examination.
A final mark of 50% is required to pass this module. This final mark is calculated as follows:
(10% x of the year mark) + (90% x mark obtained in the examination)
