Method of Assessment

The assessments are how you can demonstrate achievement of the learning outcomes previously described. Whilst we appreciate that report writing and other skills are best demonstrated by producing coursework it is a fact that to become a qualified accountant you will need to be able to pass examinations. This is one of the reasons why at Level 6, examinations are the normal means of assessment for the exempt modules. You will be exposed to longer and more complex examinations as your studies progress.

Exams are not just regurgitation of facts they will involve you applying your knowledge to scenarios and producing valid solutions to increasingly complex situations. Whilst examination is the predominant mode of assessment we have tried to include alternative methods of assessment such as essays, business reports, portfolios and presentations.

One of the key aims of any undergraduate programme is to produce an independent learner capable of properly managing their time and resources to identify issues, decide how to collect and analyse evidence and then come to reasoned conclusions based on that evidence; this is specifically achieved through the submission of an Independent Studies dissertation or consultancy report on the Accounting and Finance degree.
