Feedback on formative assessment is obtained largely through the supervision system and reports together with feedback in the supervision should provide you with enough information to understand what is required to improve or enhance your work. You should also receive feedback on course-work, dissertations and project-work that you may undertake.

Feedback on summative assessment is usually provided to students by their College Tutor or Director of Studies when discussing the marks obtained in an examination. Colleges receive a markbook which contains a breakdown of marks. This is usually given to a subject, course or paper level, and has been identified as being the best set of meaningful data.

Please note: It is University policy that examination scripts are not returned to candidates.
