Some assessments in this course are redeemable. This means that if you perform poorly in a redeemable assessment, or miss it for any reason, then you have the opportunity to make up for it in the final exam (no special request for consideration is required). As such, the final exam mark contributes a greater percentage to the overall mark for the course.
As ongoing assessment provides important feedback on your progress, we strongly advise against choosing to skip redeemable assessments. They are intended as a ‘Plan B’ in case of early difficulties with the course, illness or other unavoidable circumstances; please don’t use them as your ‘Plan A’!
