Good quality work
•As you can notice 70% of marks depend on research evidence and critical
analysis. This means that you should not only provide information about
the bank from its website and annual reports but also use relevant
academic articles after doing some search using Library sources. 30% marks
depend on good presentation, structure and referencing/reflection.
•Research doesn’t mean use of google. You should Google Scholar and the
UH Online Library search using keywords like ‘Index Disclosure’ ‘Index
Disclosure in banks’ and ‘Performance of banks’ ‘Performance of Islamic
banks’ to access suitable articles published in peer reviewed journals. Read
the abstracts first and if you find them relevant then download them and
make use of them sensibly.
•Use of charts/graphs is always helpful but must be intelligently done
