What's the typical word count for a TMA for english modules?

don't know about English.

But I'm doing a Level 1 course at the moment.

First essay was 800, and it's crept up to around 1200-1400 by the later ones.

I suspect Level 2 courses are longer, and Level 3 even longer.

Thanks FAQ. Should have stated for level 2 modules

<<<<<<takes wild stab in the dark for Level 2 and guesses 1500-2000+>>>>>>>>>>

Blimey, I know I moan about word counts not being high enough but that would be ridiculous grin
