Other Information

Competency and grading requirements

  • To be deemed competent students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of this competency. Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over multiple tasks.
  • Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their work to their teacher to ensure that the relevant competency standards are being met.
  • All competency-based assessments for this course must be completed in order to achieve a CA (Competency Achieved) award. Each assessment task will also carry a numerical weighting to be used for grading purposes. The grade applied will only be awarded if a CA has been achieved in all compulsory assessment tasks.
  • If a student has been assessed as NYC (Not Yet Competent) in any of the assessment tasks, the weighting will carry no value until the student has obtained a CA. If a CA is achieved on re-assessment, a maximum mark of 50% of the original weighting will be granted for that assessment.
  • Re-assessments will only be granted to students who were either unsuccessful in the first attempt, or have an approved application for special consideration.
  • A final exam worth 20% will be offered to students who have achieved CA level.
