TMA submission – read these instructions carefully
• Backup your TMA at all times.
• Submit early and check the originality report for possible revision and resubmission.
• Turnitin reports are generated immediately the first time but subsequent reports may
take up to a day to generate.
• Resubmissions (overwriting earlier submissions) are allowed before the deadline, but
NO further resubmissions during the grace period or thereafter.
• Upload TMA in Word document file only (not in PDF), and strictly follow the naming
convention specified for TMA files (Non-compliance to these standards might lead to
an admin fee and/or the TMA not be being marked).
• Upload correct TMA file to the correct folder of the correct course. Admin fee
applies to appeals to transfer files to correct folder.
• 12-hour grace period after the deadline is NOT an extended deadline but solely is for
resolving technical problems encountered with submissions before the deadline.
• In case of problems: Email Canvas Support LSsupport@suss.edu.sg immediately (with
relevant screenshots and your TMA attached) and follow up with Canvas Support
before the grace period is over.
• If there was no submission before the deadline, one late submission is allowed after the
deadline for up to 1 week, after which no more late submissions will be allowed.
• Automatic marks deduction applies after the 12-hour grace period (refer to the marks
deduction scheme in the Student Handbook). With this automatic deduction, there will
be no need to request for extensions from your tutor because your tutor does not have
the mandate to over-ride the Canvas system settings.
• Retain the Turnitin digital receipt as evidence of a successful submission. Appeals
submitted without the Turnitin digital receipt will not be entertained.
• View your submission immediately to ensure that the entire document has been
uploaded completely and successfully.

Word Limit
Please observe the word limit as writing succinctly is an important skill to acquire in academic
writing. All text (including in-text citations) is included in the word count except the reference
list, tables, figures, and appendices. Note that anything written beyond 10% of the word limit
will not be marked.
Referencing
Follow the APA format as described in the “PSY Referencing Guide”. Appropriate in-text
citations and an accurately formatted Reference section are expected. FIVE (5) marks have
been allocated for this component.
Information about the APA style and basic tutorials can be found in the APA website:
http://www.apastyle.org/index.aspx
Plagiarism and Collusion
The assignment is to be completed on your own. You may discuss the TMA with your coursemates, however, the assignment must be written up independently. Do not share your notes,
draft or final TMA with anyone before the marked TMAs are returned to you.
Avoid plagiarism by giving yourself sufficient time to research and understand the material so
that you can write up your assignment in your own words. Quotations should be used sparingly.
Simply citing the source of ‘copied’ chunks of text does not excuse it from plagiarism. Do
ensure that any paraphrasing is done appropriately (even if you use text from your own work
that you have submitted as part of another assignment of the same or another course).
The University takes a very serious view of plagiarism (passing off someone else’s ideas as
your own, or recycling of contents from your own earlier marked TMA from the same course
or another course) and collusion (submitting an assignment which is the same or very similar
to another student’s). Both are very serious academic offences. Please refer to the Student
Handbook on the penalties of plagiarism or collusion. You are strongly advised to submit your
TMA early, check the plagiarism report yourself, and if needed revise and resubmit your TMA
before the submission deadline.
English Competency
English competency is an assessable component of all TMAs and 5% of the total marks for
each TMA have been allocated to this component. It is important that you write clearly and
accurately, using correct grammar, punctuation and spelling.

Part 2: Essay Question
Please upload this assignment to Turnitin by Monday, 4 February 2019, 11:55pm.
Resubmissions are allowed before this cut-off time.
Question (70 marks)
Both billionaire, Branson, and psychologist, Peterson, appear to have similar sentiments
towards the pursuit of happiness, but only on the surface. Branson suggests that the pursuit of
happiness should not be a goal, whereas Peterson concludes that “the pursuit of happiness is a
pointless goal” (Lott, 2018).
Examine the ways in which the two differ and propose your own stand on the pursuit of
happiness.
(70 marks)
The word limit for Part 2 of this assignment is 1100 words.
Required readings:

Ng, W.T. (2018, September 13). Commentary: Richard Branson’s key to happiness?
Stop chasing after it. Channel NewsAsia. Retrieved from:
https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/commentary/richard-branson-stop-chasingkey-to-happiness-10667236

Lott, T. (2018, January 21). Interview. Jordan Peterson: ‘The pursuit of happiness if a
pointless goal’. The Guardian. Retrieved from:
https://www.theguardian.com/global/2018/jan/21/jordan-peterson-self-help-author12-steps-interview
General advice
In order to answer the question, students will have to use information from Study Unit 1
Chapters 1 and 2 (“Introduction and Overview of Positive Psychology” and “Happiness and
Well-Being”) and the two required readings listed above.
Students are also required to do additional research and cite at least five journal articles or book
chapters (excluding the textbook). The information in the textbook is limited, so students are
encouraged to go beyond the textbook and course material to search for relevant information
and incorporate them into their discussions. Reading widely and beyond the textbook will add
depth to their essay, and references to relevant research studies and examples will attract more
marks. There is an abundance of resources that students can access from the library and Library
eResources. Do note that internet references such as Wikipedia are not counted.
Answer should begin with an introduction that outlines the materials covered and what the
basic argument will be. Students will need to demonstrate the skill of being concise, so as to
fit the material within the word limit of 1100 words for this discussion. When planning and
writing the essay, do remember that an analytical argument and critical evaluation will gain
more marks than a descriptive essay. Students will need to cite all sources and provide complete
references in APA style.

and commas where applicable especially if there is more than 1 author), year of
