The new sections of this Assessment should be a maximum of 2,500 words. Please use headings/sub-headings to highlight changes in topic.
An ideal assignment is your opinion, supported by evidence from respected/reliable sources, expressed in your own words, and fully referenced as to the source of ideas, facts and quotations. 'In your own words' is critical in displaying your understanding of the material, rather than being expert at copy and paste.
Use Turnitin to check that you have fully paraphrased all your material. Any Turnitin result 15% (excluding reference list) suggests that you have over used other people's words. Revise, and resubmit your paper to Turnitin.
Any use of Wikipedia as a source for the assignment will result in an automatic zero mark, as it is not a reliable source.
