Assessment results: news
OCA is making an important change to the communication of assessment results. Its good news: you will get your provisional marks from assessment earlier than previously. In agreement with the OCA student association (OCASA), provisional results from the next assessment event (which runs at OCA from 6th to 22nd November), will be published online, on the OCA student website, by the end of the day on 26th November. This will include your student number, the name of the course, and your result. If you have indicated on your assessment form that you don’t want your student number to appear on the list, your mark will still appear, but with no student number associated with it. This will be followed by a letter in the post which will confirm your provisional mark and also contain comments and advice for future study from the assessors. You will receive this letter within a month of the end of the assessment.
Please note that all assessment results are provisional until confirmed by the University for the Creative Arts exam board. The Exam Board for the November assessment is on 7th December 2012. We will be publishing provisional results of the March and July (2013) assessments immediately after those events, in a similar way, but please note that there will only be one Exam Board to take account of both the March and July assessment events in 2013, on 25th July. This means that marks from the March and July events will remain provisional until 25 July 2013.
OCA is keeping an eye on the increasing number of assessment submissions, and will be looking at the the number of assessment events we have in 2014 (there are currently three for undergraduates each year).
