How long should my assignment be?
The assignment sheet will give you a rough word estimate. The relevance and quality of your answer matters more to the markers. However, if your assignment is significantly longer or shorter than this estimate, you should check your assignment again as this may mean you have more information than is necessary, or not enough.
Can I work with someone to complete my assignment?
You may discuss the assignment with friends or colleagues to aid your comprehension, but the actual assignment must be entirely your own wording and work. Penalties apply for students who write their assignments together.

Why can’t I see my assignment results when I could see them before?
