Grading & Study Time

Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose, but will usually include a combination of exams and coursework. LJMU recognises that all students perform differently according to how they are assessed, which is why we use a combination of assessment methods. These include: exams (seen and unseen), written work (essays, reports, learning logs, dissertation, lab reports, posters, review writing and blog writing), presentations (group or individual) and practical assessments. Your tutors will provide formal feedback on your coursework and exams, but constructive verbal comments from both your tutors and fellow students will also really help you to identify your successes as well as the areas where you may need to put in more work.
