        17.(1) If a student does not pass an assessment item (before any resubmission) in an enrolled core unit, or is not meeting the necessary level of professional conduct, the student may be required to attend an interview with an academic panel to review their readiness to go on a professional placement. If they are considered not ready to attempt a placement or at risk of not being able to succeed in a placement, they are withdrawn from their enrolled practicum unit with the expectation of re-enrolling and completing it in a later teaching period, after demonstrating readiness.

        Resubmission Rules

        18.(1) Students must pass all components of a Master of Teaching unit to pass the unit overall. Students who fail an assessment item may resubmit it if—

        (b) they contact the unit coordinator by email within 5 University working days of the release of the result and formally request a resubmission.

        (c) A resubmitted assignment that is deemed to be a ‘fail' by the unit coordinator, will receive the original failing mark for the component.

        (d) Where resubmission is approved, the reassessed mark is capped at the assessment pass mark, unless an application for mitigation is approved in accordance with the University Policy on Assessment: Special Consideration (UP11/23).

        (e) A resubmission is normally due one week after being approved by the unit coordinator.

        (f) Assignments that are failed on the grounds of lateness or academic misconduct will not normally be considered for resubmission.
