supplementary assessment is provided to support a student’s learning and development, and to aid his/her course progression and completion. A supplementary assessment is not a re-assessment of a student’s overall grade, or the mark for an individual assessment item, or a deferred assessment. It consists of a new item of assessment designed to give students an additional (i.e. supplementary) opportunity to demonstrate their satisfactory attainment of specific learning outcomes.
Grading a supplementary assessment
If a student passes the supplementary assessment, the highest mark they can achieve is 50%, a Pass (PA) grade. A student who fails the supplementary assessment, will receive a ‘Fail’ (NN) grade.

No feedback will be provided as this is a supplementary assessment; marks will be provided via email.
