Assessment and feedback
You'll be regularly assessed, both informally and formally, throughout your time at HYMS. You will also receive regular feedback from your tutors and from each other. Assessment and feedback are key parts of the learning process -- they help you and your tutors to be clear about what you have mastered, what you have still to learn and which skills you need more practice with. Regular assessment and feedback will also help you to identify and remedy for yourself any gaps in your understanding.
For detailed information about the feedback you can expect and how we assess you, see our Feedback and assessment page.
About degree classification
Unlike many Bachelors and Masters degrees, the MB BS is a degree without classification.
A category of 'with honours' is awarded to about 5% of students for exceptional performance. In this context, 'with honours' means the same as 'with distinction'. It doesn't mean that the degree is a conventional honours degree, as in BSc (Hons), for example.
