The pass mark for PGT modules is 50%. Any mark below 50% is considered a fail. Students may still achieve MSc with a certain proportion of failed module marks in the 40s depending on specific course regulations, but cannot attain Merit or Distinction unless they have passed all modules needed for their course and achieved the required project mark and overall average. See your student intranet for more details (navigate to Operations & Regs > Exam Board Regulations).
The tutor has provided specific comments on your work below and they may have provided an annotated script.
|Strengths & Areas for Improvement|
|Q3. ABC – The answer shows a general lack of understanding of ABC and repeats the statements made by a single Internet source without any analysis for the case. It ignores volume completely even though the reference used discusses this correctly. The final point uses an abbreviation (GAAP) which is not explained. 3 / 8
Supply scheduling used one source to explain what supply scheduling is and fails to discuss the merits and risk associated with this technique. Unfortunately the article referenced discusses a “supply schedule” and not “supply chain scheduling” – which is different 0 / 8
Dependent demand – the information is based on a single source. The concept is understood however the merits and risk associated with the technique in the case of CCC are not fully explained. 5/8
Bulk orders – although only one reference source was used most of the merits and risk were correctly identified. 7/8
VMI – a single source of reference is used for all the information. The merits were identified however the risk associated with this technique for the case company were not. 5/8
Total 3 + 0 + 5 + 7 +5 = 20/40
Q4. There is an over reliance on one single easily obtained source of information which focuses on the unethical practices associated with corruption and bribery, which although true it fails to explain how this might occur / be avoided in the case company, especially in the production, handling, transportation and disposal of the concrete, steel and glass as requested by the question. The second part of the question focused on the environmental impact of construction, like pollution. It does suggest that CCC should have an environmental framework but would have benefited from more discussion about the production, handling, storage and disposal of the three main items. The environmental section does use a few more references. 22/40
|How to improve|
|Q3. Use a variety of reference sources to create a balanced view. Justify the points being made by using examples from the case company to demonstrate the merits and risks.
Q4. Focus on the special consideration as asked for in the question, production, handling, transportation and storage of the three items, rather than just corruption. Again, there is an over reliance on a few references.
|Document structure, grammar, referencing|
|There were several typos, grammatical errors and spelling errors. There was an over reliance on a few easily obtained references however these were presented correctly.|
|Turnitin 16% no issues, however one or two paragraph could have been paraphrased better.|
