    Hey, a general question - I have just finished my all dissertation research and set the individual chapters and I have 11 weeks to write it up, have I left it too late - its 10, 000 words. please tell me I have not!

    I have done 2,000 by the way also so tecnically 8,0000 left
    Definitely not! You only have to write 727 words a week to get finished in time - that's like 1 1/2 sides of A4.

    I don't have a title yet for my dissertation but it is about student's perceptions of the PR industry. If you could take a minute to fill out my questionnaire I would be very grateful, and I would be very happy to return the favour to anyone seeking data collection. Thanks, A x

    It took me around 3 weeks to write mine, alongside working for other modules and doing my job 12-20 hours a week. So, it is definitely doable.

    Plus, I wrote a 5000 word MA-level essay in one day this week. I didn't have a choice, as we finished placement on Friday and had classes 9am-5pm each day this week. Sunday was the only option. Just keeping my fingers crossed that it is okay lol.

    I got unsubscribed again... and haven't been totally productive with my dissertation yet, however I am finally getting some relatively meaningful results using a very basic method, this is suggesting good things for when I work out how to do the complex method, that is my job for tomorrow!

    I have spent the day bulking out my appendices which could be good or bad, I have a maximum of 4000 words for appendices, bibliography, contents page and abstract.

    Also have wound up where I started only with two less variables.

    I do not like scary notes. Someone told me it was only 6 weeks till a trampolining competition the other day. Then I realised that meant 6 weeks till easter. Then I realised that meant 6 weeks until the last feedback I can get.

    However, it hasn't really helped the work ethic (I spent more time practising for the comp than doing my dissertation)
    I know its too scary its 1 month today!

    Its scary how fast times flies I got soo much in including 2 essays for another module that week, and a 2page report due in a couple of weeks luckily I got that finished and its only a 15% pre-cusor to the 4000 word report due in a couple months. I sense extenstions may be used

    That sounds evil. There is only one module in my final year which has any coursework (albeit it is 24 hrs and it is the week before Easter)

    Unfortunately I really may have bulked out my appendices too much ( i may reduce on analysis of results) I currently have only 1900 words left to use and that has to cover the rest of chapter 3, all of chapter four and my conclusion ...

    It is luckily I got 10k (min, max 12k) words to cover my back and IS, got it broken down to

    Introduction: 3000
    Materials and Methods: 1000 (maybe to 1500)
    Results: 3000
    Discussion: 3000
    Acknowledgements 100

    still got 14000 words additional up to 12k even with that as a base.


    Current word count: 1417/10000

    So I talked to my tutor on friday and he was too busy to meet properly unless it was after 5 on mon, tues or today. He asked me to email him with when I would be coming. So I arranged to meet him today. I got no reply to my email but thought I would see if he was around anyway. Waited 20 minutes and then gave up.

    Tomorrow will not be at all productive. All I need to do is my dissertation. The only thing I'm stuck on is my dissertation. I'm going to resort to other tutors and try and get a meeting tomorrow if possible

    I'm actually enjoying my dissertation at the moment apart from one stupid hypothesis which needs to go figure itself out about what I actually mean and what I found. As otherwise my dissertation is fine but this tiny bit is just confusing me and throwing everything else off..20 days til the draft is due in eep.

    I am enjoying my dissertation, but only when I'm not stuck. I am considering skipping my econometrics lectures on Fridays occassionally soon, just because it will give me an extra whole day to do dissertation and I can let the lecturer know exactly why I need the extra time. (only because he's my tutor though...)
