Q. What is the difference between writing at different levels (4, 5 or 6)?


This is not an easy answer but basically as you progress through the levels of your programme of study you will be expected to become more analytical, demonstrate the ability to undertake research and use a wider range of resources, and improve all features of your academic writing. The University does produce generic assessment criteria which may help explain this in more detail.

See the Links & Files section below for more detailed resources on this topic.
