Frequently Asked Questions:
- Do I answer all 4 questions?
NO – answer any 2 – you choose.
- Do I submit them as 1 single file
Yes please: the file will be:
- Front cover
- Paper 1
- Reference list
- Paper 2
- Reference list
- Marking sheet.
- Do I have to write an Introduction?
A brief one: For example:
This paper considers the main points of the normative ethical theory of utilitarianism.
That is a perfectly acceptable opening. Then just get on with it.
- Word count is a bit low?
It is. Which is why I don’t want a long and winding Introduction paragraph. It should also encourage you to write as concisely and economically as you can. Don’t waste words – check and re-check… are you” bloating” out your assignment with clumsy writing?
- Can we go 10% under or over the wordcount?
You can go over by up 10%. Going under is risky and would suggest you haven’t made the best use of the wordcount and might indicate a rather weak attempt. But see also my point about “bloating” in your writing. Make every word count.
- So, can we use bullet points?
No – write the essay in continuous prose in paragraphs. You can use headings if you want; remember though that they count towards the word count.
- Can we use appendices?
Not if you’re trying to circumvent the word count. In fact, there really shouldn’t be any need to use appendices in an assignment like this
- How many references do you want us to have?
There is no set number required. For such a brief paper, 3 or more is common, and acceptable. That does not mean you would be penalised if you only gave 1 or 2.
