So I’ve got a 1500 words essay and I’m just going to write 1350 words because I don’t think I can write more. Anyways, I’m meant to write the word count for my essay and I was wondering does the referencing count aswell or not?

Hey,
Citations in the text count as word count but the bibliography of references at the end of your essay don't count. You usually are allowed to hand it in 10% below or above the word count.
Hope this helps

You should refer to the assignment brief for your coursework.

Usually the references do not count.
