While the bulk of the assessment for this paper lies in the test and final exam (total 60%), you will only perform well in these if you have thoroughly prepared by working through the problems given in lectures and the assignments. You cannot pass this course unless you achieve a mark of at least 40% in each of the mid-semester test and the final exam. A student who narrowly fails to achieve 40% in either the test or exam, but bwho performs very well in the other, may be eligible for a pass in the course.All assignments must be submitted by the due date. Late submissions will not be accepted. If a student is unable to complete and submit an assignment by the deadline due to personal circumstances beyond their control they should follow the special considerations process outlined below.It is important to remember that copying another person’s work, and submitting that work as your own is plagiarism. This practice is unethical and may result in disciplinary action being taken against you. For assignments that are done in groups, it is important that all students in the group play an equal role in completing the assessment.For assignments that are done in groups, it is important that all students in the group play an equal role in completing the assessment.Students repeating the course must undertake all parts of the course. You must attend the streamflow gauging lab, soils lab, ecosystems workshop and the EIA workshop to pass the course.
