Re-assessment takes place when the summative assessment has not been completed by the original deadline, and the student has been allowed to refer or defer it to a later date (this only happens following certain criteria and is always subject to exam board approval). For obvious reasons, re-assessments cannot be the same as the original assessment and so these alternatives are set. In cases where the form of assessment is the same, the content will nevertheless be different.
|Original form of assessment||Form of re-assessment||ILOs re-assessed||Timescale for re-assessment|
|Photographic Essay||Including 15-25 photographic images and up to 1,500 words in captions and explanatory comments||1-9||August/September re-assessment period|
|Essay Reflecting on the Photographic Project||4,000 words||1-9||August/September re-assessment period|
