You will receive an individual mark for this work. It is emphasised that this aspect of the coursework should be your own work and not group work, so it is in your personal interest to ensure that you do not share it with other group members. The examiner is looking for evidence of comprehension of the tasks involved; your views; critical awareness; use of theory; interpretation and judgement; use of evidence; evaluation and a systematic approach to the use of research.
