In most cases, reports are collected in, marked and returned with a feedback sheet. The lab handouts will outline the technical aspects of the problem you should address when writing your lab report or FTR, and may provide guidance on the required content and structure of the report: You should therefore give some thought to your likely preferences for projects before finalising your choice of Michaelmas modules on COMET. You are strongly encouraged to complete coursework for all your modules from Groups A-G and M. We are especially insistent that all original readings are retained and submitted in your report.
The management modules in Group E each have a single piece of coursework instead of a lab experiment. Any instruction from the lab leaders takes precedence over departmental guidelines. The marked module lab report should be included as an appendix to the completed FTR. Arrangements for marking may slightly vary from lab to lab. These pages are maintained by course lecturers. Experiments typically involve 2 hours in the lab, working individually or in pairs, with a hour individual write-up although some modules may have special arrangements.
Modules in Groups I and S will be assessed by examination and in some cases coursework as well but all marks achieved on these modules will contribute to your overall Part IIA examination mark and will not count as part of your Part IIA cud credit.

Some modules may substitute a written exercise or essay for the full technical report. The object of the exercise is to enhance your technical communication skills — your ability to explain to others what you have done and to provide appropriate concise discussion.
Markers will be looking for a clear record of the practical work you have carried out, together with appropriate discussion. This one-hour session is aimed at students taking qualitative 3E modules who would like guidance on how to structure, write and present courseaork or essays in that context.
The commitment is 16 hours total, including up to 12 in the laboratory or the field. Students registered to these courses are automatically enrolled at the start of the course and can engage in the course activities, including coursework submission when appropriate.
The lab handouts will outline the technical aspects of the problem you should address when writing your ckursework report or FTR, and may provide guidance on the required content and structure of the report: The form of the report will vary from area to area.
If at all possible, avoid clashes between sessions for having experiments signed up and sessions for undertaking experiments. The material should not be redistributed by the students in any circumstances. Skip to main content. You are required to read these handouts before lab sessions, and perform any activity required by the Lab Leader as a preparation for the lab.
More information may coutsework available The default latest time for handing in coursework on the deadline date is 4pm cuedd you are specifically told otherwise in the coursework instructions for a given activity. In such cases, the new coversheet would have to be made available to students at the time of the lab. These courssework are based on an expansion of a module experiment, and each should involve a further 10 hours work. Part II coursework is assessed not only on technical content but also on report-writing and exposition skills.
Any special arrangements for module practical work will usually be described during the first module lecture.
