Written submissions will be assessed as an academic text and therefore it is important that the
answers are structured accordingly, the referencing style is correct, and the answers are proofread.
How you do in text references and literature list will influence the assessment of your text.
Use your own words when you answer the questions. The ability to do your own summaries and
conclusions from the literature will be part of how your answers are graded.
