Presenting your assignment

Find out what submission requirements for your school and your individual lecturer are. All essays must be word processed, double spaced and with at least 2.54cm margins on both sides. A cover sheet will include the title of the essay, your name or student number and other information that your lecturer will specify. Use simple fonts like times New Roman, Arial or Helvetica. Do not include graphics or illustrations that are not part of the essay. Use your computer's grammar and spell-checker, and get a friend to proof-read too.
