The length of an assignment is limited by a set number of 8 pages to contribute towards the development of writing skills and to ensure all work is assessed equitably.
You will need to think carefully about how best to explain your case within the permitted number of pages, using, for example, an appropriate mix of text, drawings, diagrams and tables, supplemented by information contained in appendices.
Please also remember that a report can be enhanced or damaged through layout, for example, placing all tables and drawings in appendices can hamper the flow of discussion. Decisions therefore need to be made about the most appropriate place to use tables etc. to support your case.
The specified page count refers to the main body of the report and does not include front cover, title page, contents page, executive summary, reference list or appendices.
