6.4 Assignment Guidelines:
Ø Assignments should be uploaded on E-Learning platform before the deadline
Ø Assignments submitted after the deadline will not be accepted unless mitigating and may be entitled for a late fee.
Ø Assignments must be submitted in one of the following file formats: .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx or .pdf
Ø Do not submit html files, web pages, CAD files, Visio (.vsd), PowerPoint (.ppt) or zip files unless these are specifically required for your course
Ø If you are not sure about the file format required contact your lecturer
Ø Use a common format for the questions, for example:
ü Introduction (analyse the question.)
ü Underpinning Knowledge (write about the relevant theory/points)
ü Applied knowledge (Data Analysis)
ü Conclusions and Recommendations (summarising the whole scenario keeping in view pass, merit, distinction criteria.)
Ø In order to PASS you need to address all the LO
Ø In order to get a MERIT you need to address the characteristics of Pass and address M1, M2,M3
Ø In order to get a DISTINCTION you need to address the characteristics of Pass, merit and address D1, D2 and D3
Ø Use a clear, readable font such as Verdana, Calibri, Tahoma or Arial, and be consistent and use the same font throughout
Ø Use black text on a white background. Avoid coloured backgrounds or text in a colour other than black unless you have special permission to use them (for example, if you're dyslexic)
Ø Use 12 point for the body of your assignment
Ø Use 1.5 or double spacing and fairly wide margins: this leaves room for the marker’s comments
Ø Leave a blank line between paragraphs
Ø If the questions are short, leave a blank line between each question; If they are long, start each question on a new page
Ø Left-justify your work (also known as left-aligned). AVOID block-justified (flush left and right); it might look tidy, but it is harder to read as it can result in gaps between words.
Ø Use bold for headings. Do not use underlining or italics
Ø Essays do not usually require subheadings; reports usually do

Ø The course number and name
Ø The due date

Ø You will not be penalised for producing work outside this limit but should ensure your word count is adequate to meet the assessment objectives.
Ø Remember that the title/title page, reference list and appendices are not included in the word count
