research a little, to check your understanding and to write in a logical manner.

Please observe the following in the preparation of your essay
General Presentation of your essay
The report must be word processed, double spaced with 25mm margins. The font size must be
such that the project is easily readable e.g. a font size of either 12 or 14 point (excluding
headings). Use widely-used fonts such as Times New Roman, not those that might be
considered informal or unusual. Pages must be sequentially numbered.
Chapters, sections and sub-sections must be clearly identified and sequentially numbered or
lettered, with separate chapters beginning on a new page.
Diagrams, graphs, figures, tables, pictures and charts must be incorporated into the report and
they should be clearly labelled and referenced.
References must be accurately provided in the text using the Harvard System (see Saunders et
al., 2009). All quotations must be acknowledged and correctly presented within the text i.e.
other than very short ones, quotations should be indented and in single spacing. (See Saunders
et al for further details).
Number of words should be mentioned at the end of the dissertation and before the
Word Count
Your word count should not include your abstract, or reference list. You should provide
your word count at the end of your report.
Should not exceed the word count by more than 10%; if it does, it will result in a penalty
of 5% of your marks for your work.
If your work is significantly shorter, then you will probably have failed to provide the
level of detail required.
Submitting Assessments Using Turnitin:
Turnitin is required for coursework assessments, such as report/research papers or projects in
Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and in PDF format. There are two main reasons we want you to
use Turnitin:
• Turnitin can help you avoid academic breaches and plagiarism. When you use Turnitin
before a submission deadline, you can use the Originality Report feature to compare
your work to thousands of other sources (like websites, Wikipedia, and even other
student papers). Anything in your work that identically matches another source is
highlighted for you to see. When you use this feature before the deadline, you will
have time to revise your work to avoid an instance of academic breach/plagiarism.
• Turnitin saves paper. When using Turnitin to electronically submit your work, you will
almost never have to submit a paper copy.
Late Submissions Using Turnitin
UEL has permitted students to be able to submit their coursework up to 24 hours after the
deadline. Assessments that are submitted up to 24 hours late are still marked, but with a 5%
deduction. However, you have to be very careful when you are submitting your assessment.
If you submit your work twice, once using the original deadline link and then again using the
late submission link on Turnitin, your assignment will be graded as late with the 5%
Turnitin System Failure
Best advice: Don’t wait until the last minute to submit your assessments electronically. If you
experience a problem submitting your work with Turnitin, you should notify your lecturer/tutor
by email immediately. However, deadlines are not extended unless there is a significant
systems problem with Turnitin. UEL has specific plans in place to address these issues. If
UEL finds that the issue with the system was significant, you will receive an email notifying
you of the issue and that you have been given a 24 hour extension. If you don’t receive
any email that specifically states you have been given an extension, then the original
deadline has not been changed.
Assessment Component 2:
Final Exam (50%)
05 May 2022 (Time and Place: TBC)
NB: Towards the end of term a mock exam will be provided.
Notes on Grading
Students must achieve a grade of at least 30% in both components and have a mean weighted
average grade between the two components of 40%. In the event that a student has not passed
a component one attempt at a retrieval task is permitted. The portfolio will be reassessed as
an unseen time constrained assessment.
