Being awarded an academic scholarship provides much more than the financial benefit. Long after the money has been spent, you will still have the benefit of the honor and prestige that it confers. Once you have left college and are applying for jobs, the fact that you were the recipient of a notable academic scholarship is a definite plus on any resume. If you are continuing your education by pursuing a graduate degree, an academic scholarship will also look extremely good on any school applications and may help you secure additional funds for your post graduate education.
Synoptic assessment encourages students to combine elements of their learning from different parts of a programme and to show their accumulated knowledge and understanding of a topic or subject area. A synoptic assessment normally enables students to show their ability to integrate and apply their skills, knowledge and understanding with breadth and depth in the subject. It can help to test a student's capability of applying the knowledge and understanding gained in one part of a programme to increase their understanding in other parts of the programme, or across the programme as a whole [ 1 ]. Synoptic assessment can be part of other forms of assessment.
