Please note: o To attain a mark at a higher level, all criteria at the lower level must be achieved. (i.e. to achieve a credit mark, students must fulfil all requirements for a pass and, in addition, perform at the higher level indicated by the credit requirements etc.). o It is not enough to attempt to fulfil a criterion; students must adequately address the criterion (i.e. although you may think that you have satisfied a particular requirement, you may not have done so. If this is the case, you can expect feedback from your marker indicating why you have not satisfied the requirement). o Addressing the requirements at a particular level does not guarantee you the highest available mark for that level. There will be some difference among students in regard to how well they have satisfied each requirement. Where there is some leeway for the allocation of marks, these will be awarded at the marker’s discretion (taking into account the level to which you have satisfied the requirement). * The instructions used to assess criterion 4 are provided in the Presentation section below.
