A policy folder is available for perusal at the College office.
All examinations must be taken when scheduled. Exceptions to this rule may be made only upon prior request showing adequate cause to the lecturer concerned, but the examination must be rescheduled to be taken during the examination period.
The College uses the following grading system:
- 0-49 Fail
- 50-57 Pass
- 58-64 Pass
- 65-74 Credit
- 75-84 Distinction
- 85+ High Distinction
Each subject is assessed by multiple pieces of work due at various times in the semester. Failure to complete any one piece of work will seriously hinder a student’s chances of achieving a pass in that subject.
The format for assessments is set down in the Australian College of Theology Manual. Unless required earlier by the lecturer, the deadline for submitting all assessments must be adhered to.
Late submissions will not be accepted. Exceptions to this rule may be made by the Extensions Officer in exceptional circumstances. To download the Application For Assessment Extension form, please click here and on completion, email the form to email@example.com or hand in at the College office during office hours.
All assessments must represent the student’s own work, thought and expression, except in matters of common knowledge or general opinion. An essay writing seminar is offered during first semester.
Students have the right to appeal against a mark awarded in an essay or examination. When making the appeal, students should specify the nature of their complaint and the grounds for their appeal.
Appeals should be directed to the lecturer concerned.If the lecturer does not support the appeal the student has the right of direct appeal to the Principal.
The Faculty may make additional rules, procedures and regulations from time to time as may be deemed necessary.
