• Your submitted work must be presented in size 12, Arial font with 1.5 line spacing. Each page must be numbered.
• You should avoid use of the 1st and 2nd person. Use passive voice instead and write in an appropriately formal academic style, avoiding contractions (e.g., don’t, won’t, etc.) and informal or spoken forms of language.
• The word count for this assignment is 1500 words; please note the University guidelines which stipulate that you may submit 10% over or under this word count. The title page and the reference list are not included in the word count.
