• Main body – sub-section 1. Writings pertaining to relevant theory and informed by what is already known e.g. where you demonstrate your research and understanding of theory and concepts. There is a systematic identification and presentation of theories and key concepts. Being critical means considering previous studies and offering definitions, explanations and examination (approx. 1000 words).

† Tip – In sub-section 2 of the main body, ensure that you integrate practical examples and illustrations that logically corroborate theory and concepts already discussed in sub- section 1 of the main body.
