To successfully complete this course, students will be required to complete an online multiple choice examination. This counts for 100% of the final mark. During the course there are ten SAPs (coursework) and a thesis. Please note: this work is not mandatory as it will have no influence on your final grade. However, we do highly recommend that you do complete them as they will prove beneficial when it comes to examination preparation.
