Weight: 100%. You will receive a grade for IFN001 based on your mark out of 100 for the Resource Log.
Word limit: The word limit listed in the Resource Log is a guide only. There are no deductions for being over the word limit but we encourage you to answer the questions clearly and succinctly.
The due date for your assessment is based on when you commenced your course of study and your mode of study. That is, for full-time students, the IFN001 assessment is to be submitted no later than three months from the commencement date of your course, whilst part-time students have six months from the date of commencement into your course.
