Assessment and exams

Assessments

You must complete formative and summative assessments for each unit.

Formative Assessment

Formative assessments are tutorial class essays and exercises. They are compulsory but don't contribute to your final grade. All incoming Economics Erasmus students do the same number of formative assignments as Bristol students.

Summative Assessment

Summative assessments can be an end-of-unit final exam, a combination of final exam and summative coursework, or summative coursework alone and will determine your final grade.

Please note that summative coursework that contributes to your final grade is separate from formative coursework.

Exam Periods

Exam periods take place at the end of each teaching block (semester).

You must be able to attend all assessments held within exam periods.

Translation Dictionary

If English is not your first language you can apply to take a translation dictionary into exams.  The Erasmus and Study Abroad Co-ordinator will contact you with further information as the exam period approaches.
