Accurate content
You will be marked on how well you answer the question and the accuracy and completeness of the
information you present.
Structure and presentation
Your essay should have an introduction, body and conclusion. It should be logical and flow from one
section to the next. Your essay should contain no spelling errors, and should use correct grammar
and punctuation. You will be also be marked on good use of paragraphing, the use of headings
where appropriate, the use of white-space and overall formatting.
Referencing
It would be anticipated that no less than 10 references would be provided for an essay such as
this. References should be no earlier than 2010 in most cases. You should endeavour to
provide a depth and breadth of references. You should reference some journal articles and
have no more than 5 internet references (electronic journals are not counted in this number).
Professional bodies’ web references are acceptable, but references such as ‘cheat.com’ and
‘fratfiles.com’ will not be acceptable.
Correct referencing
• You will automatically lose all marks for referencing if you do not:
o Use the Harvard (author-date) system of referencing.
o Include a correctly presented reference list – note the different ways of referencing books,
articles and electronic sources.
• Essays that are not referenced at all will automatically receive an overall Fail grade as failure to
reference constitutes plagiarism – whether quoting directly, paraphrasing, or simply presenting
ideas that you got from reading the articles, you must reference the source.
