Assessment is in the form of assignments and exams, however Khalsa College London has its own internal policy of continuous assessment which is carried out each term in the form of an exam and short assignment. Additionally your Course co-ordinator will discuss with you course specifications, how to access additional external information, assessment criteria and feedback. We work with students in the classroom to identify areas of both strength and weakness and there is an opportunity to have weekly one-to-one time with a member of our teaching staff to discuss any areas of concern and/or gain feedback on assignments. Assignments are marked following the CTH criteria by an approved IV (Internal Verifier) before submission to CTH (EV) external verifier for final sign-off. Any exams will be conducted under strict invigilation following CTH’s guidelines and our own exam policy guidelines.
