Why do students fail in Oxford Brookes Project?
This is one of the most significant questions that you should understand before attempting Research and Analysis Project (RAP). For the failure rate of first submissions fluctuates between whopping 60% and 70%. Which is a major blow to the financial investment and time that goes in the RAP. Good news is, our team of expert writers has come to recognize a specific set of shortcomings that lead to failed projects.
Based on our years of experience of successful RAP, we have listed down some reasons. Do yourself a favor and go through each of them to grasp the gravity of each point.
- Instructional Neglect
This is one point that can be traced in every failed project. It never ceases to amaze us that despite there being the comprehensive instructions and assessment criteria, most students fail here. Either they simply don’t understand the guidelines or consciously ignored them altogether. Whatever the case, the OBU moderators are least lenient with projects that deviate from the instructions provided in the study pack.
Another crucial reason for why so many students fail the
RAP is the integration of plagiarized content. Even you must know how serious an
academic offence is this, don’t you? Still, there is a shocking percentile of
students that fail solely due to plagiarism. The management and moderator panel
at OBU uses very sophisticated mechanisms to filter each submitted project to
detect plagiarized content despite the best efforts to rewrite or remold someone
else’s ideas or writings. Unless there is proper acknowledgment or citation
included, the plagiarized files are discarded instantly.
Understanding & Applying Business models
You do know that there are different topics of the RAP and each of these topics require different models. For instance, Topic 8 requires financial and business model such as SWOT, PESTEL, etc., or topic 5, 9, 4, 2 require evaluation models so on and so forth. A great number of students fail to make the appropriate choices of models. It is one of the prime factors of failure to be unable to defend the strength and weaknesses of the chosen model.
