Progress & Assessment

Your project supervisor will be monitoring the effort you are putting in on your project and, in extreme cases, lack of effort may result in formal 'Requirement to Withdraw' proceedings being initiated.


Marks for this year contribute 60% towards the final BSc classification and 30% to the MPhys one. In order to graduate, you must also satisfy certain University requirements on the number of credits obtained on passed modules.

Assessment of Modules

The modules PX392 Quantum Physics of Atoms and PX384 Electrodynamics are assessed by examination (85%) and coursework (15%). PX390 is 100% assessed by coursework. Other lectured modules given by the Physics Department are assessed by written examination. The Physics Project is assessed on the basis of interim and final reports and a viva.

Most of the courses given by outside departments are assessed by a combination of assessed coursework, e.g. essays, and examination. Fluid Dynamics is 100% examined.
