PostSubject: Doubt on passing mark criteria   Mon Aug 06, 2007 3:04 pm

Hi,
I would like to seek an advise from WOU or anyone's on WOU regarding passing mark on course subject. I understand from student handbooks, in order to pass the subject ie; bahasa,u math,computing, we need to pass our TMA and also final exam.

Scenario 1: If pass TMA and fail final exam, is it consider fail totally with an F in final results ??

Scenario 2: If fail TMA and pass final exam, is it also consider fail totally with an F in final results ??

Scenario 3: If fail TMA (20mark) and fail exam (20mark), is it consider fail or pass? because the total mark is equal to 40mark which is the minimum passing mark for some subject.

Please advise thanks..

regards
tan

Hi Hatan,

Below are what i know, but for safe please check with RO.

Scenario 1: You will either get 'F' or 'FR'. (FR = Allowed to reseat only for examination without needs to gone thru all the tutorial class and TMA). Incase you got 'F', means that your examination marks fall below the acceptable range and you might have to retake the subject again, including of attending the toturial, TMA and proceed with the final examination.

Scenario 2: We have to pass both assignments and examination in order to pass the overall subject, but not sure about the 'F' or 'FR'.

Scenario 3: If both components fall in 20 marks, means that the total marks end out with 40, which is considered the minimum passing marks for certain subjects, but not for all subjects especially LAN subjects which need to achieve the minimum of 50 marks in overall (If i not mistaken). However, you might need to check with RO on these to reconfirm.

Thanks,
Louis

Hi Tan,

I am sure a lot of new students have the same concern as you. Bear in mind, no one can ensure the result of our study, BUT supports and encourages among fellow students and the believe on our self, are very important. I am sure that we can overcome the challenges and barriers we are facing in our ODL journey, which myself, Louis and other senior students had gone thru such experience.

I would encourage you to look for study groups. This will certainly help you a lot.


Please feel free to ask any questions, we are here to help each others.

Cheers. Smile
Yeoh
