Must achieve >50% to pass the subject overall.
Must also achieve an average of >50% for the combined total of the practical exams.
Must be present for >80% of classes, which means that students can only miss 2 uncertified classes throughout the course.
Failure to comply with practical class attendance will require students to sit the Basic Competencies Exam (BCE).
- Nonattendance: Class attendance is compulsory. Students must not miss more than 2 classes. Exceptions will only be made for those students who can certify having been hospitalised on the given day, or due to a relative passing away. Absences due to any other reasons will account for an unexcused absence (of which you can have up to 2). No regular medical certificates or employment excuses are accepted.
- Exams: 2 exams (lower and upper limb). Students must get a final average above 5 for the 2 exams to pass the subject. A grade below 5 will require sitting the BCE. The BCE will consist of a theoretical and practical exam. Students who pass the BCE will get a final mark for the subject of 5/10.
- Oral project presentation: This is a group project that will consist of a presentation in front of the whole class. The themes will be related to describing and explaining different manual therapies techniques (i.e: Mulligan; Mezieres, Kaltenborn, McConnels, Myofascial release; Cranio-Sacral Therapy, etc) or Professions i.e: (Chiropraxy; Osteopathy; Acupuncture; Massage Therapy, etc.).
The mark for this project will account for 20% of the total subject final mark.
