8. What about the no detriment / safety net policy?

A number of students at ACM have been speaking to us, in our daily student drop-in sessions, about a ‘no detriment policy’, where the minimum grades they may receive this term shall be based on previous assessments from earlier in the year, but can be increased by high performance in the current assessments.  

Some institutions around the country have adopted this policy, but it is our understanding that our own University partners (Middlesex University for ACM Guildford and ACM Birmingham, Falmouth University for ACM London) have not.  

We are taking your feedback to our partners and will come back to you with further information as soon as we have it.
