Extra Information: Bringing back the +/-10% word count rule will be really beneficial for students affected by the recent changes to the word count policy. Students working on assignments will have to significantly reduce their word counts under the stated requirement. This may result in difficulties when conveying arguments and points, resulting in lower marks and vague explanations.
