Clear application of issues to the specific accounting policies used by Rolls Royce is required.
Your evaluation must be supported by academic theories and concepts and the paper must comply with the academic essay format and the Harvard referencing guidelines.
There is no correct number of academic references to be utilised as the student must draw as many references as required to provide a high quality answer. However, a minimum of 10 academic sources are expected, and a majority of these should be current, internationally peer reviewed articles/journals or accredited textbook references. Sources such as Wikipedia are not accepted. Sources available only online should be avoided.
You must be mindful that marks will be allocated based on your knowledge and comprehension and your ability to define, explain , apply, analyse and evaluate the key concepts. The chart below demonstrates how the marks (for content) will be allocated according to the criteria shown.
