feedback and course work (UKPSF A2 A3)

Tomorrow is the deadline for the first course work for the stat353 course, which I am teaching. One issue I am having problems with is that many students are asking me to almost check their solutions.
The very good students ask very specific questions. I don't want to discourage them from the correct solution. It is difficult, because the course work is marked. So I don't want to tell people the answer, but it seems against the idea of giving feedback, if I provide no help at all.

The feedback can't just be when the course work is marked.
