Student reviews

This module was straightforward and the materials clear. Tutorials were informative, going over the relevant module material recently studied, though weren't always timed well, many people found the tutorials covered topics too early. There was a lot to cover for 30 credits. It was disappointing that none of the tma marks contribute to the result other than reaching a threshold to take the exam. The 3 hour exam itself focussed on only a few parts of the module, yet you have to revise a huge amount of material. It's a shame this isn't a 60 credit module.
