Will I be penalised for mistakes in spelling and grammar?
This depends on the subject matter of your course. For example, if you are taking a course in English, languages or teaching, then you will normally be marked down for mistakes in spelling and grammar.
If you have dyslexia or any other condition which may affect your ability to use correct spelling and grammar, we will already know about this from the enrolment form returned by you at the beginning of your course.
If you are concerned about your spelling or grammar, please use a basic spell-checker as this will eliminate most spelling and typographical errors.
