WORD COUNT: Word count +/- 10% must be clearly displayed on the title page or cover sheet. Required word count does not include text appearing in tables, graphs, figures, footnotes, captions and references. Tables, graphs, and figures can enhance assignment presentation if used in moderation to convey directly relevant information. However, generally tables, graphs and figures should be included as Appendices at the end of your assignment with an interpretation of these in text. Tables, graphs and figures should not be used as tools to increase the amount of information that you are conveying whilst still remaining within the required word count, nor are they a substitute for your own synthesis or interpretation of the material. Thus, as a guide, tables, graphs or figures presented should not consist of more than 10% of the total assignment word count, whilst keeping in mind that any words so included are not part of the required word count.
