GENERAL ASSIGNMENT GUIDANCE
Teamwork and its assessment Should this assignment require you to work as part of a team, you will receive an individual grade based upon your

performance as well as personalised feedback. The module leader will explain how your individual grade and feedback will be determined.
Importance of word counts and presentation timings Assignment word counts and presentation timings should always be observed. Ignoring a word count

increases significantly the risk of your work losing marks because it lacked structure, flow, focus and clarity. Timings must be observed for assessed

presentations for the same reasons.
