...and this table provides further details on the summative assessments for this module.

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|
|Portfolio of work||Resubmission of portfolio (5,000 words)||1-4, 6||August/September reassessment period|
|Skills meetings notes (10%) and teamwork assessment (10%)||Reflective essay on teamwork and legal skills (2,500 words)||5-6||August/September reassessment period|
