Assessments and Examination

Assessment and Examination System

1- Students are assessed on a regular basis throughout the semester via written, practical, and oral exams, in addition to research, daily assignments, participation in class discussions, and course attendance, as well as other assessment methods. This helps students to determine their achievement level during the semester and tackle any educational problems they face regularly.

2- The final grade for each course consists of coursework marks and final assessment marks as follows:

  • 30% representing the total mark for the student’s assessment during the first 7 weeks of the semester. This may include various exams or daily
  • assignments. The 7th-week mark is announced online by the end of week 8.
  • 20% representing the total mark for the student’s assessment from week 8 to week 12. This may include various exams or daily assignments. The
  • 12th-week mark is announced by the relevant academic departments.
  • 10% representing the total mark for course work, including discussions, regular attendance, and submitting assignments during the semester.
  • 40% representing the student’s total mark in the course final assessment.
  • To pass the final exam, the student’s mark should not be less than 30% of the total exam mark. This is one of the conditions to succeed in the subject the student is registering for.

3- The final assessment for each course is held once at the end of the semester. It may be a written and/or practice exam according to the course nature. The exam must be comprehensive covering all course contents, with the exception of the “graduation project” for which the relevant department council decides the suitable evaluation method and announces it to students at the beginning of project registration.

4- Students are entitled to review all regular and final exam papers, reports, and research after being marked and recorded according to Quality Assurance Regulations.

5- Students are entitled to have their final exam papers remarked upon after submitting an appeal to the relevant head of the department within 30 days of announcing the final results.
