Examinations are conducted at the end of each semester. Examination questions are set by lecturers in charge of each course but such questions are vetted by the departmental external examiner. Each lecturer assesses candidates’ scripts based on prepared rubric (marking scheme) already vetted by the Departmental Board. Examination scores constitute 75% of the total grade in each course.
In addition to the general examinations, the department equally implements a strict routine of continuous assessment grading system. The continuous assessment is administered by course lecturers and takes place during the course of the semester. 25% of the total grade for each course is based on candidates’ performance in the continuous assessment test.
