In my first year I kept losing marks because my referencing wasn’t up to scratch – some journals I’d mentioned in the text and then forgotten to put in the reference list, not using brackets, commas in the wrong place etc etc – the list goes on!!
But I feel like every time I correct something, like remembering to put the date in brackets (how pedantic can you get!?), I end up forgetting to do something else.
I’m going into second year now so it’s about time I got my head round how to reference. It can’t be as hard as I’m making it out to be and it seems ridiculous to lose marks on referencing when it’s just a set formula.
Has anyone found any useful tools or ways of remembering?
