If you are having difficulties complying with the word count guidelines, some general suggestions/options in this situation are:

  1. Reduce the breadth of coverage
  2. Reduce the depth of coverage
  3. Reduce the amount of introductory material (e.g.,, summarise and link to more dedicated resources) in order to concentrate on the main material (i.e., that which directly answers the sub-title question)
  4. Be more selective about the citations and references (i.e., only include the top/best ones)
  5. Renegotiate the topic so that it is more specific (i.e., less territory to cover)
  6. Put some content into subpages (which don’t count in the overall word count, but also doesn’t count for marking purposes)
