Your answer should include an essay plan and your essay, written in an appropriate essay style with proper sentences and paragraphs. You should include relevant drawings, tables and diagrams. You are not required to provide references. Your essay should be no longer than 1200 words in length – this is a mandatory word limit and 2 marks will be deducted if you exceed it (i.e. if your essay exceeds the word limit by 10%). Include a word count at the end of your essay. Your word count does not include figure legends, the content of tables, essay title (though the latter is not necessary) nor the essay plan. It is possible to write a high scoring essay in less words.
All figures and diagrams must be hand drawn and your own work; however tables can be computer generated (e.g. using the table tool in Word).
