A test will be held in Week 4 of the semester relating to the work completed in the first three weeks of semester. Attendance at the test is compulsory. If a student is absent from the test, a medical certificate will be required. If a medical certificate is provided to justify absence from the test, a student will be permitted to sit an alternative version of the test at an alternative date to be arranged. Otherwise, if a student is absent from the test and no medical certificate is provided, the student will be awarded 0 (zero) out of 20.
The tests are closed book. That is, students will not be permitted to take any books, notes or materials into the venue except for pens, pencil, erasers and non-programmable calculators. Students must take the test in the tutorial group they are enrolled.
