Compulsory Components
Compulsory Course ComponentAn average mark in the laboratory component of at least 50% is required to pass the course. This ensures students achieve an appropriate level of practical experience as described in the course objectives. Laboratory marks are progressively determined and recorded in Blackboard so students are able to self monitor their progress in meeting this criteria. In the event of adverse circumstances, either an exemption in an individual laboratory, or a repeat laboratory can be arranged.
