- The title page is one such area. The contents of the title page have been modified by almost every institution to suit their own needs. There are some people that will require their scholars to include the date of submitting their work and the name of their supervisor. For some institutions, this is unnecessary. However, as you go through various samples you will realize that the title of your essay must always be present and it must appear at the top of the page as the first item on the title page. This is obviously so that by just one glance someone will know what your essay is about.
- It is expected that any document written in APA must be double spaced. This is a rule that can never change. The paragraphs also have to be aligned left and indented. This rule always applies no matter what institution you are affiliated to.
- Some institutions require that the page numbers appear at the bottom of the page. Some people will insist that for APA format, the page numbered have to appear at the top left side of the page. However regardless of the style that the different institutions subscribe to they all require that when writing in APA format, the pages have to be numbered.
