    • Final years/second offenders.

OTHER PEOPLES’ IDEAS

AND MORE ON THAT….

  • Present any words that are not yours as quotations and provide a reference in each instance of use
  • Present the phrases that are not your words as quotations and provide a reference at the end of the essay , there is no need to provide references in the body of the essay
  • (c) Provide a reference at the end of the essay, there is no need
  • to reference as you go along or to present the words as quotations as they are now mixed with your own words
