Note that for the semester mark, your mark received for the assignment is reworked to a mark out of 10 . The total marks (out of 85), however, is used again in the caluclation towards your final portfolio mark. So if you had full marks, 76.5 will count towards your final PM.

If I got 91% Assignment 1 thus 91*0.1 = 9.1 which is out of 10

Then if I get 90% portfolio thus 90*0.85 =76.5

Therefore final mark = 9.1+76.5 =85.5

Is that how the final mark will be calculated?

Let me know if this is correct.

Yes.

Sir but that means Assignment 1 was suppose to count 15% not 10% because the portfolio is 85%.

Where does it say that?

So we can't really ever get 100%?
100*0.1=10
100*0.85=85
10+85=95.
Or are there bonus marks?

Assignment 1 counts 10% and the portfolio 90%

Hi
So if I got an sms from unisa with my mark for assignment 1 then I can take it that it has been marked? Even though my student number appeared on this phorum as not being received?

thank you

Despite it clearly stating in the tut that besides submitting assignment 1 through myUnisa, it needs to be emailed to me.
Some emails were rejected by the server however, and those student numbers were posted on the forum
Some of those emailed me their assignments again.
In last month I sent out an email to all students with outstanding marks, and asked them to resend it to me just in case the server rejected it.
Some then sent their assignments to me again. Others not.

So clearly some students are ignorant of tut letters, announcements on myUnisa, and their myLife email account. I know this because some just used last year's Assignment 1 code as is and did not even notice that one had to add the week of the year etc. So the attitude and intent of some students are clear.

Now, if you received an SMS I marked it.
If not, I may still be in the process of marking it.

A this point, these students I have not received an email from.

36963895
38594609
44184972
47886188

SO that is the end of the story. I will not answer any posts or emails about assignment 1 anymore.

Dear All

Thank you for your support throughout our confusion and darkness Mr. van der Merwe. I wish all the students best of luck in completing their portfolios. I am having sleepless nights for the past few weeks and I will need a thorough massage after these exams.

Thanks again and best of luck fellow students.

Regards,

My dad used to say if University was easy then everybody would be at varsity. My wish (and intent) is that you are empowered.
