ITOP TIPS
You are strongly advised to revisit the full summative slides for further information
I have followed the assignment remit and my essay
DOES NOT EXCEED 2500 WORDS (+/- 10%).
I have followed the essay remit to maximise my
potential for marks in line with the level 5 HSK
marking criteria.
I have taken the time to check that every citation is
applied correctly.
I have tried to ensure that most of my citations are at
the start of the sentence to ‘pose’ an argument.
I have taken the time to ensure that my reference list
is accurate and that every citation can be found in my
reference list.
I have not plagiarised from any resources and am
aware that I will be referred to the School Academic
Conduct Officers (SACO) if plagiarism is identified in
my essay.
I have demonstrated that I have met the learning
outcomes and incorporated high quality literature
(nursing articles/eBooks) to support my
discussions.
I am aware that using patient level resources to
support discussions will inhibit marks significantly.
However, you could indicate that patients might be
signposted to specific resources in relevant sections.
I have used the template provided and font Arial size
12 Font with 1.5 line spacing.
I have presented clear paragraphs with spaces
between each paragraph.
I have considered the overall flow of the essay and
attempted to ensure that the paragraphs/topics flow
into each other.

abbreviations
i.e. Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
I have checked my work to ensure that I have not
included any other abbreviations: doesn’t MUST BE

correct any issues before I submit my work.
