Guidelines for Assignement
Use Arial 11pt, single spacing.
• Write your responses in ESSAY AND PARAGRAPH FORMAT. Avoid bullet-type responses.
• Appendices may be a maximum of three pages each, with the information in them relevant to the assignment and summarised. Provide relevant links referenced in your appendices so that your assessor can evaluate them.
• Respect the introduction, body, and conclusion format for answering questions – this counts for marks.

Referencing
• Plagiarism is a serious offense. Do not copy directly from any text unless absolutely necessary.
Enclose quotes in inverted commas to indicate that they are not your words, and include an in-text
reference with each quote. Paraphrase all the reference comments that you use and include
appropriate reference and page numbers.
• Use the in-text referencing method prescribed by Regenesys under guidelines and policies on
the student portal. Consult the referencing mark allocation guide for the minimum number of
references needed for this assignment.
• Full referencing of all sources, including page numbers in in-text referencing, is essential.
For example: (Gitman, 2010:15) in text, and then in your reference list:
Gitman, L.J. 2010, Principles of Managerial Finance, Cape Town: Pearson Education.
• Extensive and credible academic references are required to demonstrate that you have
researched the topics fully and so that you can substantiate your arguments critically.
