Information on assessment of theory modules in view of the current situation due to covid-19.
As a one time measure only and on an ad hoc basis the Institute of Tourism Studies has decided to cancel the in-class examination sessions that were due in June 2020. All the examinations for modules ending in the second semester will be replaced by a different mode of assessment which will lead to the final mark of each and every module. Different modules will carry different assessment methods as approved by the Board of Studies and the Programme Quality Validation Board. Students who fail these modules will be given the opportunity for a resit.
Practical modules, particularly those involving culinary arts, food and beverage service, and computerised accounting systems will have recovery courses to make up for the missed sessions during the month of September. The examinations for these modules will also be substituted with alternative assessment methods which will be communicated to you by your lecturers.
Each lecturer will advise you on the method of assessment closer to the date of the end of the semester. In the meantime it is important to note that the next academic year is planned to start on the 5th of October 2020.
All resits that were scheduled for June 2020 (i.e. for examinations failed in the first semester) will now be postponed to SEPTEMBER 2020. Resits of 1st semester exams will remain in the form of an examination, whether practical or theoretical.
This information has been sent by email to ITS students on their ITS email addresses.
