Summary module description:

This module represents Year 2 of the BSc Applied Chemistry (3+1) and is compiled totally of courses studied in Nanjing University of Information, Science and Technology (NUIST), China. These courses are owned by NUIST and have individual course descriptions and assessments which are managed by NUIST.


Aims:
This module represents Year 2 of the BSc Applied Chemistry (3+1) and is compiled totally of courses studied in Nanjing University of Information, Science and Technology (NUIST), China. These courses are owned by NUIST and have individual course descriptions and assessments which are managed by NUIST.

Assessable learning outcomes:
The learning outcomes of this module are derived from the suite of courses delivered and studied in NUIST. Curriculum mapping of these courses onto Parts 1 and 2 of the BSc Chemistry programme has shown that the learning outcomes are common.

Additional outcomes:
The additional outcomes of this module are derived from the suite of courses delivered and studied in NUIST. Curriculum mapping of these courses onto Parts 1 and 2 of the BSc Chemistry programme has shown that the additional outcomes are common.

Summative Assessment Methods:
Method Percentage

Summative assessment- Examinations:

Summative assessment- Coursework and in-class tests:
A mark will be generated for the above modules studied and assessed in NUIST using a mixture of examination and coursework. This mark is based upon the individual percentages for the courses listed above weighted according to their credit rating. The NUIST mark will be converted to a UoR mark using the algorithm in the Operational Handbook. This mark constitutes the UoR mark for Part 2 of the BSc Applied Chemistry (3+1).

Formative assessment methods:

Penalties for late submission:
The Module Convener will apply the following penalties for work submitted late:

  • where the piece of work is submitted after the original deadline (or any formally agreed extension to the deadline): 10% of the total marks available for that piece of work will be deducted from the mark for each working day[1] (or part thereof) following the deadline up to a total of five working days;
  • where the piece of work is submitted more than five working days after the original deadline (or any formally agreed extension to the deadline): a mark of zero will be recorded.

  • The University policy statement on penalties for late submission can be found at: http://www.reading.ac.uk/web/FILES/qualitysupport/penaltiesforlatesubmission.pdf
    You are strongly advised to ensure that coursework is submitted by the relevant deadline. You should note that it is advisable to submit work in an unfinished state rather than to fail to submit any work.

    Assessment requirements for a pass:
    An average NUIST mark of 70% with no individual mark less than 60%

    Reassessment arrangements:
    According to NUIST policy. Individual courses may be re-taken during the following semester.
