    Hi,
    I am thinking of joining the Open university at Level 2 and was wondering what the average word length is for a TMA and also the EMA for a Level 2 and Level 3 module (60 credits).
    I guess that on average you write one TMA per month.

    I don't think there is an average. Obviously science subjects will be less than arts.

    In science I have 12 TMA's (4 modules, 3 per module) some have extended essays, some don't. It will vary from module to module and slightly from year to year. Obviously EMA's are generally bigger than TMA's but again it depends on the subject.

    I guess it makes sense to say that it cannot be generalised as such. I am considering studying the humanities, so it'll be different from science.

    The main concern I have is that each TMA will be between 1000-3000 words, which, if you think about it, would be quite a lot to do considering it's about one TMA a month (5-6 TMAs for humanities per 60 credits).

    The TMA's must be essentially typeset or they can be handwritten if you wish?
