10th Century European History
The College Handbook for Taught Students makes clear that students who submit work
which is late or overlength will be penalized severely.
Submission of assessed course work:
All assessed coursework should be submitted online via BART; it is your responsibility
to check your BART record to establish the due date for relevant course work.
Return of assessed work
Work will be returned to you once it has been moderated by another member of staff; this
may take up to three weeks to complete. Please note: marks awarded for all assessed
work are provisional and subject to review and adjustment by the external examiner
during the examination period. This process may result in marks being confirmed, raised
(4) Examination (summative: 50% of the overall mark)
A 2-hour seen examination, held in May/June, in which two questions will be answered;
this accounts for the remaining 50% of the overall course assessment.
A sample exam paper is to be found later in this handbook.
There also past exam papers for a previous version of the module, HIH2020 (‘Post-
Carolingian Europe’), for May/June 2003, May/June 2005, and May/June 2007,
May/June 2009. Please note that the format of the paper was rather different as students
were asked to do three questions in two hours including a gobbet; you will not be
required to do a gobbet question.
V Essay questions
You are required to do ONE essay plan and ONE essay but I would encourage you to do
TWO essay plans. For each essay you should read AT LEAST 6 items from the course
bibliography, and try to read some original source material; if you are in any doubt about
what to read for an essay then ask me for advice.
REMEMBER – there are other students taking this course; there will consequently be
considerable pressure on the library’s resources. It is therefore essential that you do NOT
leave your research for an essay until the week before it is due. Failure to get hold of the
necessary books in time will not, of itself, be considered grounds for an extension and
inadequate and superficial research will, inevitably, be reflected in your essay mark.
NOTE: These titles are based around stand-alone lectures; exam questions will be based
on seminar topics.
