including full workings of your financial analysis in the appendix sections of your assignment.
Report Format:
1. The maximum word count for the main text excluding tables is 2,500 words. Exceeding the word
count by more than 10% can result in a reduction of marks. Only the main text excluding any tables
and diagrams counts, excluding the contents page, executive summary, list of references and
appendix.
2. The assignment must have a front cover stating:
? Module number and name and seminar group number
? Title of the assignment
? Student names and IDs for each group member
? Submission date
