PHYS3621 Foundations of Physics 3A

  • Written Examination

    Following the publication of results in June, students will be able to obtain a statement of their own marks from the University’s online self-service tool. In addition, the Department may provide students with information about their performance in each question of each examination, on a scale of A to E, in order to help them to interpret their examination results, for example potentially to highlight areas which they have not fully understood. In addition, for each course the lecturer may provide, via duo, some brief general comments on the students’ performance in their examination questions, including common mistakes, etc.
  • Problem Exercises

    The weekly problems for this module are self-assessed. The model solutions are made available via the Web and additional (verbal) feedback is available in the workshops during the following week.
