Refer / defer assignment two

Over last few years, many press outlets have mentioned a possible bubble in the Chinese housing market:

(a)       Explain and justify why the Chinese housing market might currently be in a speculative bubble.

 

(b)       Analyse how financial markets and their participants have contributed to the          formation of this bubble.

(c)        Summarise and justify the factors that will cause this bubble to move forward.

 

Please note the following important points:

  • The assessment criteria for this assessment task are shown in the following grid.

 

  • Word limit: 2000 words. Adding on the 10% leeway allowed by the university, this means that you can go up to a maximum of 2200 words. Any words in excess of 2200 will not be assessed.

 

  • The word limit does not include references, your bibliography or any appendices.

 

  • The word-count must be clearly marked either at the beginning or end of your answer.

 

  • Please do not include your name in a header or footer.

 

  • For the deadline date please see your assessment diary in Blackboard. Sheffield Business School operates a deadline time of 3:00pm for all coursework submissions.  Submissions should be online via the Blackboard submission point.  Please be aware that if you do not submit via the Blackboard submission point it will be deemed a non-submission and therefore receive a mark of zero.

 

  • If you submit work after an assessment deadline without an authorised extension but within 24 hours (excluding the weekend period) of the original submission time you will receive either a capped mark at the minimum pass mark or the full uncapped mark for your work, whichever is the lower. If you submit work after this period you will not receive a mark for your work but you will receive feedback comments from your tutor.

 

  • A ‘final copy’ electronic version of your assignment should also be submitted prior to the deadline via Turnitin. If this is not done your assignment will be deemed as being late.

 

  • Several days before the deadline, you are advised to submit one draft submission of your assignment to TurnitinUK to check that there are no problems with the originality of your work.

 

  • Late submission, plagiarism and cheating will be dealt with under standard University regulations, which are available via MyHallam.
