General Guidance to students


? The introduction should be brief. It is not meant to provide a history of Apple
? Use the first three questions in the assignment brief to structure the report findings
? The Conclusion needs to draw the analysis to a close and comment on the sustainability of Applesi??s strategic position. Remember you do not introduce new findings into the Conclusion
? No Appendices are to be included. All diagrams and tables need to be included in the main body of the report
? References should clearly list all the material that has been referred to in the report and set out as follows:


? Remember to use the models in a i??dynamici?? way i.e. place relevant examples onto the models. Do not simply copy and paste i??generici?? examples from the lecture slides
? Words in the models are not included in the word limit. HOWEVER, the models lose their value if they are full of text. They should aid understanding not confuse the reader because too much has been stuffed into them. There should be a maximum of 300 words in each diagram or table.
? Models should be included in the main body of the report.
? You may well refer to points made in earlier parts of the report to show the connections in the analysis. However, do not try to force connections e.g. all points in the PEST and 5 Forces models do not need to be directly linked, they are looking at separate things, though examples in the PEST will inform drivers in the 5 forces,
? You will struggle to stay within the word limit so focus on the KEY DRIVERS in your analysis
? You will not be able to use all of the examples if you have done the level of reading required so i??cherry picki?? those that best illustrate the key drivers
? Facts and figures need to be supported with sources clearly referenced.


? Be your own independent work and free from plagiarism by ensuring that work that is not your own is clearly referenced
? Use Harvard style citation and referencing using the Drop-in centre published guidelines
? Be written in appropriate academic style
? Be professionally presented
? Be word processed using font size 12 for the main text and 1.5 line spacing
? Have numbered pages
? Have been spell checked and proof-read
? Be anonymous and have your Student Enrolment number on every page
? Have a clearly labelled front page detailing the module code and title, title of the assignment, tutors name, your enrolment number and the date of submission
? Be submitted via the Turnitin link on the module Blackboard site
