3. Then submit the assignment file and the SAP exercise file electronically by the due date via the EASE link on the study desk. If you experience issues with the submission process please:
1. Ensure that the size of your file is less than 5MB and that it is a document file, types .doc, .docx, or .rtf, then try to submit again,
