Term Test 2 comprises Units 5-8
Term Test 3 comprises Units 9-12

  • Unit competence (formative) is assessed through knowledge (online assessment), performance (practical assessment) or combination consisting of both.
  • 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 three Term Tests.
The end of program summary result is taken from the average of the accumulated 3 (three) Term Final results.
