When writing assignments - length of answers

  • Question
  • Updated 7 years ago
Hello everyone!

I'm new to Stonebridge, enrolled on the Master Herbalist/Phytotherapy course and completed reading the lengthy first assignment.

Very keen to start typing up answers to my first question paper, but just wanted to shoot a questions at fellow students first.

With regards to writing the answers, how many sentences per (10 mark) question have people tended to write? Is a short paragraph (3-4 sentences) enough, or does your tutor usually want/expect more?

For other courses with questions worth more/less points perhaps people can share their thoughts too.

Hello again Michael!

I have just answered your question in the "Master Herbalist" thread. Sorry it took me a month to respond! ;)

A study partner is always a great idea! Which assignment are you now on? I'm just finishing off my answers to assignment 2 to hopefully submit sometime this week...

I've done 2 different courses with Stonebridge, and when I came down to the question paper I was a bit worried on how much to write. Some of the questions I had were worth 5 where as others were worth 10 to 15 marks. My advice would be to answer the questions in much detail as possible, and make sure you include the information the question is asking. You could also back up the information using books related to your course, which would impress the tutor as it proves your researching and also extending your knowledge. I use books to back up most of my assignment questions and the tutor is always very pleased with them.

Hope it helps

Good Luck with your course.
