  • 6. 
    What should I do if the student included an abstract?

      Penalise the student under criterion D (as the structure/layout is not appropriate, if it includes an abstract)

    • B. 

      Count if the overall length includes the abstract or not (if it is does not, the EE could be over 4000 words and I would need to stop reading after 4000 words, probably missing the end of the conclusion)

    • C. 

      Do nothing, as the abstract is not a requirement any more, although it can contribute to the overall quality and coherence of the EE.

    • D. 

      Inform my Team Leader, as the IB wants to keep track of the number of EEs that include an abstract
