It is important that your essay or report is properly structured. Also, as this is an academic paper, you should draw on contemporary literature to support your paper. Remember that this individual essay accounts for 50% of your module assessment. Hence, bad performance will have a big impact on this module.Your essay should include references to the appropriate literature (textbooks, journals and websites). Care should be taken when consulting websites as they are not all equally authoritative (for example Wikipedia is not peer-reviewed; therefore is not considered an academic reference website). A minimum of 5 different academic references must be cited, but a well-researched essay/report is likely to cite many more.You are advised to keep a backup copy of the essay until you receive your grade and regularly back-up your work in the cloud (SkyDrive, iCloud, Dropbox and GoogleDrive are good examples). A disk crash is not an acceptable reason for late submission.
