Can I go over the word count?


There can sometimes be different rules and guidelines for each School or Subject Department, and going too far above or below the word count may mean a reduction in your marks.

Before you start to write up your assignment you should check the information provided in your module handbook or assignment brief, or ask your tutor for guidance.
