Commonly Asked Questions ;

“Do I have to use all 8 references in my essay?

Yes. We have chosen 8 references as the minimum standard to demonstrate that good quality essays require the student to read widely to get a range of perspectives and evidence. It is certainly possible to include many more. Remember that any reference in the reference list must be used in the essay.

“Does it matter if the articles I find focus on another country like America? “

As we covered mainly the Australian experience in the course, the focus of the essay should be Australia. However, you might like to include brief points of comparison from other countries to demonstrate the point/s you are making..
