  • Labs Marking

    Posted by Morty Al-Banna Friday 13 November 2020, 02:18:48 AM.

    Dear All,

    Just to provide some visibility into the lab activities marking, we have uploaded the lab marking for lab activities 1-4 in SMS (Use the same method that you have used for the assignment1 to see the mark). if you have presented all the labs (1 to 4) then you will see that your mark is 8/8. in order to get the full mark you need to present one more activity (Lab5 OR Lab6). if you have missed one or more lab activities then it is better to present both Lab5 AND Lab6 to compensate.

    Remember that the total mark for the labs assessment is 10/10. so if you present 6 activities, then that is excellent but still you are going to get only 10/10. We will update the total lab mark (take lab5 and lab6 in consideration) by week10 and release Labs_Total.

    If for labs 1 to 4 there is any mistake or you are sure you have presented the activity yet you do not see that the mark is reflected please contact me via e-mail or Teams.
