Programme Regulations and Dissatisfaction with Assessment

The academic conduct of the students is governed by the University Academic and Students Regulation (UASR). All students must obtain a copy of the UASR from the FNU academic office and familiarize themselves with all academic matters. Should a student be dissatisfied with either the internal or external assessment, they can take the following steps to get redress of their grievance. Internal Assessment: The student can refer the work back to the unit coordinator for checking and reassessment. Following this reassessment, if the student is still dissatisfied, the student may refer the work to the HOD. The HOD will then appoint another lecturer to examine the work and result will then stand. Final Exam: The student can apply for re-check of the grade as per the procedures laid down in the UASR. 8.0 Plagiarism and Dishonest Practice Regulation

Plagiarism and dishonest practices are serious offences for which offenders shall be penalized. Students must read the relevant section of UASR to understand the various types of cases defined as dishonest practices in academic work and to also know the penalties associated with these kinds of practices.
