A written progress report on the current state of the project is submitted in the last week of the first term for 5% credit (combined with the specification). A presentation of the final results of the project is given to the assessors during the last two weeks of the second term for 15% credit. A detailed written report of the project is submitted during the second week of the third term for 80% credit.
