Assignment Guidance and Front Sheet
This front sheet for assignments is designed to contain the brief, the submission instructions, and the actual student submission for any WMG assignment. As a result the sheet is completed by several people over time, and is therefore split up into sections explaining who completes what information and when. Yellow highlighted text indicates examples or further explanation of what is requested, and the highlight and instructions should be removed as you populate ‘your’ section.

To be completed by the student(s) prior to final submission:
Your actual submission should be written at the end of this cover sheet file, or attached with the cover sheet at the front if drafted in a separate file, program or application.
Student ID or IDs for group work e.g. 1234567

To be completed (highlighted parts only) by the programme administration after approval and prior to issuing of the assessment; to be consulted by the student(s) so that you know how and when to submit:


Submission guidance To be submitted electronically in ONE file (instead of separate files) in supported types (e.g. MS Word, Acrobat PDF, and maximum file size is 40MB) via Tabula
Marks return date (excluding extensions) 15 July 2022 Latest date that marks can be returned to the students (i.e. 20 working days turnaround for UK markers, and 30 working days for HKPU local markers)

Late submission policy If work is submitted late, penalties will be applied at the rate of 5 marks per University working day after the due date, up to a maximum of 10 working days late. After this period the mark for the work will be reduced to 0 (which is the maximum penalty). “Late” means after the submission deadline time as well as the date – work submitted after the given time even on the same day is counted as 1 day late.

Only for Postgraduate students who started their current course before 1 January 2020: the daily penalty is 3 marks rather than 5.

Resubmission policy If you fail this assignment or module, please be aware that the University allows students to remedy such failure (within certain limits). Decisions to authorise such resubmissions are made by Exam Boards. Normally these will be issued at specific times of the year, depending on your programme of study. More information can be found from your programme office if you are concerned.

To be completed by the module owner/tutor prior to approval and issuing of the assessment; to be consulted by the student(s) so that you understand the assignment brief, its context within the module, and any specific criteria and advice from the tutor:

Module title & code Logistics & Operations Management (ES961_03HK) Weekday Mode 2

Writing your Post-Module Assignment (PMA): specific additional advice for WMG’s Postgraduate Taught Students

As a postgraduate level student in WMG you may have some concerns about your ability to write at the high standard required. This short guide is intended to provide general guidance and advice. It is important that if you have any questions you discuss them with your module tutor. Remember, in writing your PMA you need to meet the expectations of the reader and university.

A good PMA generally requires you to answer the question and to include…

A title, with your student number, module, lecturer’s name and any other documentation required by the university.
A contents page and if appropriate, an abstract.
An introduction which acts as a ‘map’ to the rest of the document, describing the aim or purpose of the work and explaining how this aim is achieved. At this point it is usually helpful to paraphrase your conclusion.
Evidence of an appropriate level of background reading of relevant texts.
Evidence of systematic and clear thinking, indicative of good planning and organisation.
Writing which makes sense, is clearly and carefully presented (proof-read and grammar checked).
A critical style of writing which compares and contrasts the main theories, concepts and arguments with conclusions that are based in evidence presented.
High levels of accurate academic referencing.
A logical and well-defined structure with headings and subheadings.
Clearly labelled and well-presented diagrams and other graphics that are discussed in the text.
Adherence to usual academic standards including length and a timely submission.
A reference section in which every source that is cited in the text is listed.
