Your answers should also be technically edited. To assist you in this regard, the following paragraph gives you a few hints on the contents and technical presentation of answers. Study this section carefully. First read the questions carefully to determine the subject. Do not start writing until you have ascertained what is expected of you. The next step is to collect data on the question. The best way to answer an assignment is to work through the study guide and the relevant sections in the prescribed textbooks systematically and then to jot down point by point everything that is relevant to the subject. Of course, you are also free to use any other sources you have consulted. Arrange and group the relevant data to enable you to present them meaningfully. In the presentation of your answer note that each answer must have four basic subsections, namely: o Title . Your assignment must have a title to show whether or not you have understood the question properly. o Table of contents . Always include a table of contents by listing the headings and subheadings of your assignment. o An introduction that demarcates the subject. In the case of a question that has to be interpreted before you answer it, you may define and reformulate the question in your own words in your introduction to show what you understand it to mean and how you intend answering it (but take care that you do not change the meaning of the question). Note that there should be only one introduction for the assignment as a whole and not one per question. o A discussion of the questions, which comprises an interpretation and logical explanation of the data collected. A logical explanation means that the information should be subdivided into sections, which should have appropriate headings and subheadings. o A conclusion, which contains a summary of your arguments and (where necessary) states your conclusions. If possible, giver your own opinion, since this adds to the value of your answer. Again, there should only be one conclusion at the end of your assignment and not one per question. While answering the question you should continually ask yourself if you are on the right track and not just summarising the tutorial letter. Your assignments must show that you have completely mastered all the prescribed tutorial matter. In other words, you must be able to identify the sections of the tutorial matter that are relevant, analyse it with insight, express it in your own words and illustrate your discussion with suitable examples. Do not commit plagiarism by simply regurgitating the prescribed tutorial matter or material from any other source. Your assignments must be your own work and if you quote or paraphrase information, please acknowledge the sources.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
