Dear Kate, No, the method of assessment is certainly not secret and I
thought we had given out information about this before - but to recap:
For those who take the written exam (i.e. formal assessment of the
Exam 50% Project 50% Assignments "taken into account in
deciding the final grade assessment"

For those not taking the exam (no formal assessment, but certificate of
successful completion of PPS course):
Project 50%, assignments 50%
But you do not get an actual grade, just a "successful completion of
course" certificate.

Is this OK - let me know if further clarification is necessary

Best wishes to all of you who are taking the written exam on Monday,
