Absence from Quiz
A student who is absent from quiz without valid Leave of Absence will be given zero mark for the
missed quiz.
If you have a valid reason for absence, inform your lecturer and your tutor before the quiz so
that a replacement quiz in another tutorial group may be arranged in the same week. You will
also need to notify your school and obtain a leave of absence. If a replacement quiz cannot be
arranged, the weight for the quiz will be transferred to the final exam.
