"Exam revision was unclear what was needed to focus on, guidance give was to revise the whole text book with no clear idea on what principles or concepts need to be revised in particular. This is a lot of information to remember in detail in a closed book examination."
Review and update the exam revision slides and guideline by including all key concepts and principles of this unit.
