When registering for a Group Assigned Practical Task (GAPT), it is suggested that the team size should be not less than three and not more than four students. Teams of five students may be considered in extraordinary cases depending on the project’s nature. The team should have a “leader” who will act as an internal rallying point and an external liaison. The responsibilities of the “leader” are set at the discretion of the lecturer who is supervising the GAPT.
Group Assigned Practical Tasks should only be selected AFTER your group composition has been confirmed. Subsequently, the group as a whole must decide on the order of preference of their choice. Up to three (3) Group Assigned Practical Tasks can be selected in order of numerical preference.
The Faculty reserves the right to refuse the preference of a student in a Group Assigned Practical Task, if the student fails to form part of a group.
The method of assessment for a Group Assigned Practical Task is made up of two compenents, being Project (85%) and Presentation (15%).
