1.The alternate/digital examination will be sat for a period of 24 hours. This means that the examination paper will be released on the NILE site at the below date and time following which you will have a period of 24 hours within which to submit an answer on NILE. Please note that this 24-hour deadline is a strict one and cannot therefore be extended.
2.The alternate/digital exam paper will be released on the NILE site at 9.30 am on Thursday 7th of May and you will have until 9.30 am on Friday 8th May to submit an answer to the submission point on the NILE site. All timings are BST (GMT+1).
3.The word limit for the examination is 1,000 words per question. This gives a total word count of 2,000 words for the whole paper. You will therefore need to focus your discussion solely on that which is relevant to the questions you select and maintain a good level of detailed discussion and thorough application.
4.If you have been assessed by ASSIST as needing extra time please contact Ebenezer for further guidance.
5.There is an expectation that your answers will be fully referenced using OSCOLA in the usual way. The requirement for referencing does not mean that you need to do a fully detailed research-based essay. It is just that if you do use material from journals (as you should) you need to reference them fully and properly.
6.As this is an examination, you will only receive brief/minimal feedback on the paper in accordance with our usual practice. Students who require additional feedback following the release of the examination grades should contact the Module leader.
Please do ensure that you do not collude with other students in preparing your answers as this will raise issues of academic misconduct which may attract penalties or lead to your grade being withheld pending an investigation by an academic integrity officer.

(a)The Second opportunity will take place between 29th June and 10th July
(b)The third opportunity will take place between 17th and 21st August.
You should have received detailed guidance about these but bear in mind that that once you pass the digital exam you cannot submit again on the resit to improve your grade.
You are strongly encouraged to make sure you take the first opportunity while the learning is still fresh in your mind.

Infuriated by what she is told, Beverly yells out to the gym receptionist on the phone; “I will be pursuing this in court to recover my money.” Beverley then hangs up and leaves for a GP appointment. At the appointment, Beverly’s GP tells her that she is suffering from a bout of cholera. He asks her about the current state of the surroundings of her living space.
In reply, Beverly tells her GP that she lives in a flat with common areas which are very poorly maintained and are rarely ever cleaned. Things have gotten so bad that it is not uncommon to find human bodily waste in the elevators and on staircases within the building.
Very concerned that these unsanitary conditions are clearly affecting Beverly’s health her GP asks whether she has tried asking her landlord to maintain the common areas by having them cleaned. Beverly replies; “I have already tried speaking to him about it but my landlord says it is not his legal duty to keep the common areas clean because the contract I signed does not state that. I am not sure what else I can do about this.
