Firstly and to be completely clear; The Unit 10 submission on the 7th of February will consist of:
> The Course Project.
> The research and development work for the personal project proposed at the end of the 2nd year.
This practical work will be in the research portfolio described in the briefing sheet.
> an edited 'highlights' of important/significant moments in your research and development.
This will be in the development file again described in the briefing sheet.
> a contextual statement [300 words - word processed].
> a revised Individual Programme of Study [IPS] again described in the briefing sheet.
One of the most important things to remember when preparing the Unit 10 submission is that organisation is vital. You have to assume that the people looking at and assessing your work have no prior knowledge of what you do or why you do it.
So you need to present a cogent and logical body of work that truthfully describes what and how you have compiled/produced/organised and incorporated in to your thinking research material.
In the subsequent posts I am going to take you through 1 of last years high achieving submissions to describe this. It is important to bear in mind that this is one way of doing this - NOT the only way of doing it and I am using it as an example because it describes clearly the depth and breadth of the process and clearly articulates the decision making processes.
