In completing university assignments in Economics, it is vital that you carefully read and completely understand the task with which you have been presented. Your lecturers are looking to see that you can come to terms with their requirements and, importantly, that you can respond to the directions in a relevant way. If you write an answer to what you think the task is about, or what you would like it to be about, you will not get many marks if it is not what the task is actually asking you to do. It may be a well-written response, but it must address and be relevant to the requirements.

Hence, it is important that you take the time to pull apart, or analyse, your task so that you are crystal clear on what you are being asked to do. You then have a clear direction for further work on the assignment, and you will be using your time as efficiently as possible.
