Ia will be looking for a clear record of the practical work you have carried out, together with appropriate discussion. The coversheet highlight the criteria for marking and guides the marker during the assessment of the report.
The deadline for booking your ExA for either Michaelmas or Lent is Wednesday of week 1 in Michaelmas Term Full cursework reports FTRs You must submit a total of two full technical reports, at least one of which must be in the Michaelmas term. Having checked that a lab is suitable, you should coirsework the experimental work early in the term and submit the lab report no later than week 6.
Sign-up may be on-line or on a signing sheet. Some modules offer a choice of lab, but you may only sign up for one lab associated with the module. The report itself should be typed or word processed to a professional standard — FTRs are assessed for quality of presentation as well as technical content.
A key is needed to self-enrol on any course. Readings taken jointly in the laboratory may of course be shared with your lab partner, but reports must be written individually. 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. All inquiries should be made directly to the module leader or lecturers.
If submitted on paper, all reports or essays for Group E modules must be submitted with a coversheet attached. See the report writing guide for generic guidance. Lab demonstrators are invited to check that students arrive prepared, and might penalise students who come unprepared. Sign-up may be on-line or sheets located in group centres. The material should not be redistributed by the students in any circumstances.
In such cases, the new coversheet would have to be made available to students at the time of the lab. During Michaelmas, the Service has organised a range of careers information events and there will be evening presentations from approximately organisations. The marked module lab report should be included as an appendix to the completed Coudsework. Some projects have pre-requisite modules and will assume certain background knowledge.
Most ExAs are designed to introduce you to various measurement and test procedures in your chosen professional area, but non-technical options also exist, such as the Language ExA. If you do complete more than eight eligible pieces of coursework, your best eight marks will be carried forward towards your Part IIA coursework credit total.
Part II coursework is assessed not only on technical content but also on report-writing and exposition skills.
