Hey, so I'm in third year and I really don't think I can make it to the end. I cannot get myself to be motivated or focus on the work. Ive got four assignments due in the next 2 weeks; a dissertation (10k-12k words), a 4000-word essay, a 3000-word assignment and a 2500 word essay. I cant do this anymore, i've had so many breakdowns - i just want to dropout. ...

- Remind yourself why you're here in the first place.
- Breathe.
- Prioritise everything.
- Treat yourself when you get a big thing done.
- Give yourself a big reward for when you finish the year.

I'm here if you want to talk :hugs:

You just have to do it, either you don't and you lay around which gives you short term pleasure, or you get the work done and achieve long term pleasure.

You just have to ask yoruslef which is more important to you.

Doesn't matter, you need to be getting the work done.

You just have to start, you shouldn't be afraid of starting, once you begin it's like riding a bike.

This was me a few days ago, I feel like this and I only have 3 days left! In regard to the dissertation, I also left mine really last minute so found breaking it up into chunks each day really helped. It might not seem like it but 2 weeks is a relatively long time and you’re lucky you don’t also have exams. Still very possible to put together all that work to at least a 2:1 standard

My only real assignment was the diss, it was only 7.5K however I somehow managed to do it and submit it within 3 days! Good luck with your work, bet loads of people have left stuff late it just happens sometimes

It's good that your dissertation is nearly finished anyway.

Have you tried going to the doctors to get a diagnosis of stress /anxiety?

This would help your case if you were to apply for extra time to complete your final essays. I would make an appointment with a doctor (if you haven't already) and then go to see your personal tutor.

Hey, honestly you can do it!!! Look at all the other people who have done it! You will be fine!! Have you got friends around you doing the same? Maybe study together and motivate each other? If you are really too stressed speak to your student support officer and they may be able to help you. Good Luck!!
