THE DISCUSSION CLASSES

Note that regional discussion classes will not be held in this module, as in the previous semesters. The University has made the decision that discussion classes will be replaced with a new online tutor model. Currently only face-to-face tutor support is given through regional centres in this module. Please contact your regional office in that regard. The main form of online support, and module related discussion will be through myUnisa, the “Discussions forum” tool.

myUnisa DISCUSSION FORUM

We urge students to make use of the “Discussion forum” tool on the MNG301A page on myUnisa. This forum offers valuable learning experiences and an opportunity to engage in discussions with fellow students. We do provide feedback and guidance on these discussions.

FINAL ASSESSMENT MARK

You will be awarded marks for Assignments 01 and 02. The higher of the two assignment marks will be combined with your examination mark to give you your final assessment mark. Students who do not submit Assignment 01 do not have admission to the examination and need to repeat MNG301A. Irrespective of the year mark obtained, a subminimum of 40% must be obtained in the examination. You will therefore not pass the module if your examination mark is less than 40%.
