Coursework formatting according to the standard

The end of the semester is always a stressful and exciting period. In order to successfully pass the session and not lose the budget space, students devote most of their personal time to preparing for exams and tests. Students are especially responsible for coursework, as the grade for it is given separately and affects the total score. The development of a research project begins a month before the session. While the deadlines are not tight, it is important to have time to get acquainted with the rules of writing the work and take care of its design, so that in the last days before the delivery of the project did not have to disturb the teacher and ask him to accept the corrected material.

Structure of the course work

Registered design coursework for the standard in 2015 or according to the rules of the university where you are studying. In case of ambiguity, it is better to give preference to the requirements of the department, because it is there that they will check your work and put up the final score. But if you do not have the right sample at hand, but you need to rely on something, then this guide will help you. First of all, it is necessary to list the main sections of the course. They go in the following sequence:

  1. Title page
  2. Annotation
  3. Table of contents
  4. Introduction of the course work
  5. Main part (consists of 2-4 chapters)
  6. Conclusion
  7. List of terms
  8. List of sources
  9. Applications

Most sections take up one or more pages, so it’s easy to compose them without help. The exception is the main part – it is voluminous and informative; we have to work a lot on it. If you are not sure that you can fully cope with the course work, our authors are always ready to help you. You can order a project of any complexity from us – it will be completed with high quality and on time!

Text Document Formatting

As the material is written, it is necessary to maintain clear control over the appearance of the document, the layout of the text on the pages and its design. Some of the parameters are set in advance in the settings of Word or another editor, and they remain unchanged until the end; in some cases, the formatting is specific to each section or text element. Not so much effort is spent on the design of coursework for the 2015 standard, the main thing is to comply with the norms from the very beginning, and not to start editing the document after working on it.

The main provisions regarding the coursework:

  • The font and size of the letters: Times New Roman, 14 pt. for standard text and 16-18 pt. for headings.
  • Line spacing – 1.5 units. The value increases one and a half to two times before paragraphs or after the names of chapters and paragraphs.
  • Indents from sheet borders: upper and lower – 2 cm, right – 1.5 cm, left – 3 cm.
  • The red line at the beginning of the paragraph (linear indent before the first sentence) – 1.3 cm.
  • Page numbering is at the bottom center, in Arabic numerals (numbers are not put only on the title page and table of contents, but they are taken into account when counting).
  • Headings should be centered; you can’t put a full stop after them. Question marks and exclamation marks are allowed (but in practice this is rare).
  • Each new section (for example, the main chapters after the introduction) begins on a new sheet, even if there is a lot of empty space on the previous one.
  • All text, except headings, should be justified.
  • Formulas, tables and images should be numbered. All graphic elements need to be signed and referenced in the text.

Familiarity with the standard is especially useful for first and second year students, since in the future it will be easier for them to work on other student projects. When making a course is still more important to be guided by the requirements of the school, but if the project meets state standards, then this will in no way affect the final grade.
