First Year

Assessment for European Economics Issues 1st year Module:

End of Semester Assessment;
This module is assessed by a ‘TIMED essay’ in the last week of term and a traditional 2 hour exam in the Summer. For the timed essay the students are given the topic in advance and are allowed to prepare one A4 page of notes in advance, which must be included with the written essay. I am flexible about how long the take to write but I expect an average of about 80/90 minutes. If they wish, students are allowed to consult textbooks outside the room during the Timed Essay (although they rarely do – but it provides them with an additional psychological security blanket)).
