I have the following assignment question and I'm a little stuck!

Has anyone had any previous experience of doing this question? I'm not looking for any answers, just a bit of guidance please! I have loves of notes, but not sure of how to start or what it should look like

You are required to produce an assignment plan that will support you when writing an illustrated report for your unit 5 assignment.

You do not need to write the report for this unit – you only need to produce an assignment plan.

Your assignment plan needs to be as structured and detailed as possible so that you can use it when completing unit 5.

GUIDANCE:
Using the timetable approach to assignment planning, you should firstly list all of the stages that you are going to need to complete for your unit 5 assignment, from reading the assignment brief to producing a first draft, through to producing your final draft and submitting it for marking.

You must review the unit 5 assignment brief and the relevant assessment criteria before producing your assignment plan. Your assignment plan must then include the structure and format of the unit 5 assignment, including any sections, headings and word count(s).

Where you include the first draft you need to break this down into the different sections you will need to write for an illustrated report following the recommended report format that is in section 1.1 of the study materials for the ‘Academic Writing Skills’ unit. Each section within the report format includes an indicative number of words; you should incorporate this information into your assignment plan.

You then need to allocate each of the stages a suitable time frame for completion. The submission date for your report is 10 days from today and the start date is today. Ensure that you use actual dates within your assignment plan and not ‘week 1’, ‘week 2’ etc.

Once you have done this, you should enter all of your stages and their allocated time frame for completion into a timetable or chart. Refer to the timetable provided in the Assessor Guidance for this assignment.

You can then review your timetable to ensure that your time scales are realistic and that you are going to be able to submit your assignment by the set deadline.

The timetable approach to assignment planning should include:-
• An outline of the content, format, structure and layout, including relevant word counts
• Deadline for the production of the first draft
• Allocated time for proofreading and amending
• Deadline for the production of the final draft
• Allocated time for final checking
• The submission date

If anyone could help that would be amazing!! Thank you! ☺️

Create an excel spreadsheet / word doc with 10 columns. (for the 10 days)
list ALL the things you need to do in terms of the assignment, (reading, note taking, section 1, 2..., conclsuion, draft for review, proof reading....etc) and then put in the timetable. dont bother with dates until you have completed the actual planner and then you can put the dates in .. example Monday 17.05.2021 Tuesday 18.05.2021 etc and count 10 days on. on the last day, the entry should read ( hand in / submit assignment)

So I submitted, and failed 😩
The tutor said what I did was more of a study guide, not an assignment guide, but he’s not giving me much in terms of guidance.
I’m literally completely stuck 😭 it’s making me want to give up
