Word Limits and penalties
Assignments are expected to be 2,500 words in length. The word count excludes footnotes (provided they contain a reference and are not part of the assignment answer), endnotes, bibliography and figures. Tables which contain text will be included in the total word count, whilst tables which contain numerical data will not.
If an assignment exceeds the word limit by the specified amount, then tutors will implement the following deductions:
|Excess Length||Mark Deduction|
|Up to and including 10%||5 Marks|
|More than 10%, up to including 20%||10 Marks|
|More than 20%, up to and including 30%||15 Marks|
|More than 30%||The work may be submitted and accepted but will be assigned a grade 0|
