I would have expected the college to provide you with a list of symbols, many are in BS7671:2008 page 36 has a load, also 4188.8.131.52 and 4184.108.40.206 plus 422.3.2, page 117, 599.7, with Table 55.2 giving a whole host of symbols.
And you can't always follow the symbols when using software like Multisim or Electronic work bench in the same way as using Footnotes in Word it may not follow exactly what is required for a Bibliography but it would be a very poor lecture who would not allow it.
