Hi,

I am writing a 3,000 word essay. I'm midway through and have only just noticed that the department setting the essay says that there "preferred" referencing style is Harvard but I am only familiar with the MHRA style, which I have been using for this essay.

My question is; should I amend my current essay so it is in line with the Harvard style even though I'm not really sure how it is done, or should I stick with what I know which is the MHRA style? Will they really mind that much?

Many thanks.

Always use the preferred style and it's easy to look up how it works. It's a common style so if you are using a ref manager (you really should be) then it'll do it for you.

Harvard. No need to antagonise the markers! You've only got a couple of pages to redo.
