Alexander the Great - Assessment


Assessment of the module for all students is 50% for two essays and 50% a 2-hour exam in the May/June session of examinations.

  1. The exam will be divided into two parts: students will be required (1) to provide historical comments on two short passages drawn from the main sources and (2) to write two essays (from a choice of titles).
  2. Students are required to produce 2 essays during the module (length: c. 2,500 words), one in each term.

Submission deadlines: 12.00 Monday 14 November 2011, for the first essay, and 12.00 Tuesday 31 January 2012. If you think that you will have difficulty in meeting a deadline, it is vital to inform either the Head of Department or the Director of Undergraduate Studies well in advance; otherwise you will be penalized in line with University policy (deduction of 5% per day). You will almost certainly be required to provide medical evidence or a letter proving exceptional circumstances.
