This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade).

Possibly some further information in regards to start-up business plans or an example. There are plenty of established business plans that can be found online to review but a start-up was more difficult.
Recommendation
The lecturer will be notified to give more examples and further explain start-up business plans in the next delivery of the unit.
