There is no word count for these assignments. However, one sentence answers will be rejected and you will have to re-submit it for marking.

Completing a series of tutor marked assignments together with an end of course multi-choice questionnaire will lead you to the highly acclaimed ABC Certificate in Medication and Domiciliary Care.
