TMA stands for Tutor Marked Assignment. It’s a computer base test or assignment given to National Open University Of Nigeria students every semester before their exams.
NOUN TMA comes out 3times every semester, TMA1, TMA2, TMA3. Each consists of 10 questions and 10marks , making it all a total of 30marks.
EG; BIO101 TMA1, TMA2, TMA3 = 30MARKS.
After your exams, your TMA scores will be added to your exam scores to determine your grade for that semester, so that’s why you have to take your TMAS very seriously.
If you fail any course in any semester, you will be required to register it again as a carry-over and redo all the TMA for that course.
All TMAs are available in your student’s portal at nouonline.net when you login except for GST TMAs which are available in your student’s portal at E-learn.
Each TMA that comes out, eg; TMA1, can last up to 2 to 3weeks before it closes for the next one TMA2 to start.
To check how many days or time you have left on any TMA that comes out you can visit nouonline.net scroll down to the bottom to see it.
This timer on the photo above will start counting down once any TMA is out, but if you’re subscribed to our mail newsletter or a member of this platform we’re always updating our members via our communication channels so you won’t miss out.
It is important to start solving your TMAs immediately they’re out because the TMA portal can easily get congested especially during rush hour with thousands of Students submitting at once and this normally slow down the website most times.
Lastly, you can still fail some questions on the TMA portal even if you get the answers right. These are some minor issues with TMA submission that is beyond any NOUN student’s control.
So don’t say we didn’t tell you what to expect as a new NOUN student – Goodluck
