  • Term assessment (summative) consisting of a cluster of units always take the form of a combination assessment where both theoretical knowledge and practical application is assessed
  • The acquisition of practical skills in favour of theoretical skills is supported through a ratio weighting of 70:30 in the summative term assessment

The average of all accumulated Unit results weights 40% of the Final Term result. The Term Test weights 60% of the Final Term result. This system is applied for all four Term Tests.
