Assessment methods

You may be assessed on what you have learnt in a module in several ways.  The methods of assessment for individual modules and their weightings are detailed on the module information pages.

The deadlines for any coursework are detailed in the relevant module area on KEATS.  Deadlines must be adhered to: coursework will be considered as 'late' as soon as the deadline has passed. You must take the possibility of a delay due to technical errors into account when working to the deadline.

Written examinations

Usually at the end of the year, this is the most common method of assessment in the faculty.


Coursework may take a number of forms; it can be a traditional essay or it could be a significant project and may have a number of components that are assessed to make up the final mark. Details of what your lecturer expects from your coursework for each module will be outlined to you in your classes and module information.


The ability to express yourself clearly is highly valued by employers, and it is important to obtain some practice in the art of verbal communication before you graduate from King’s. Presentations are a small step in helping you to develop your skills in this area.

You might be asked to present your work on a project, on a laboratory or a specific topic. How your lecturer will mark you on this will be detailed in your module.

Further information about this is available on the Communication Skills page.
