Four interim exams
There will four interim exams of 40 minutes. These will focus on (but not be restricted to) the vocabulary and grammar introduced since the previous exam. Students should be aiming to achieve upwards of 70% in these exams.
The two hour exam will contain passages for translation and/or comprehension which have not been seen previously, and a separate section with questions actively testing knowledge of accidence and syntax. Words that cannot be deduced easily will be glossed.
Passing the module
For first year students, this is a core module. If you do not achieve a mark of 40% overall in the five exams, then you will be required to resit an examination in the first week of September. If you do not pass in September, you will be required to withdraw from the University.
Non-first years cannot resit but carry the mark that they gain. Their unseen and/or comprehension questions will be marked on the university's 20 point scale.
