    I think you can do it :dumbells:

    Most universities have a +/- 10% on the word count so you only need to write 7,200 words to be within an acceptable limit. Throw in some gnarly, relevant quotes and 500 words on the introduction and another 500 on the conclusion and it's all looking a bit more achievable.

    How much research have you done so far? If you know the subject and have notes I reckon this is achievable :bl:

    Break it down in to sections and then focus on writing each section at a time :woo: Then the whole thing is way less overwhelming

    Puddles the Monkey We have an option of doing 6 pages tomorrow and the rest at another due date, or, submitting it all tomorrow for extra credit. But the 6 pages is still a big deal because then I can't even take it back lol

    Oh didn't see this; yes exactly, might take the 6 page option. I have a killer outline though.

    I would definitely do the 6 page option - better to have a better grade overall and not worry about the extra credit, right? :beard:

    Also, use the fact that the bibliography may count and that makes the overall word count less

    I know someone who started an 5000 word essay at 10pm with it being due in the next morning. It was an economics essay at Warwick and they got a first. It might be possible, but to be honest, if I was you and the essay was important in anyway I'd do everything in my power to get an extension.
    That is not a human. 5000 words in one night???

    More than doable, especially depending on the time of the deadline - for instance, if it's 11:59PM tomorrow (which mine usually are), then you have the day tomorrow to work on it too.

    But even if not, get cracking, and you can manage it still. Just make sure to get rid of any distractions, and don't put it off any longer :fuhrer:

    Here's a bot that will write 500 words on what you tell it to. Do that 16 times and you're sorted.

    Edit: You can only see parts of what it writes unless you pay like $25 for 50 articles.
    It doesn't write 500 words. You give it a topic, it finds some relevant articles on the internet and rewrites them down to 500 words (with grammar,spelling and semantic errors). If you google samples of the output text, you will find the source article so Turnitin will deffo flag it up as plagiarism. Basically, it will be paying for 500-word plagiarised text.

    I had a feeling this was how it worked.

    Depends on what kind of essay! If it's a research paper, hahahahha good luck. If it's an English paper (lit, analysis, etc.), you've got a chance. Drink that coffee, blast some music and WRITE.

    OP I don't know about your uni, but at Warwick (and most unis I'm familiar with) there's a late submission penalty of 5% for each day that an assessment is overdue.

    In this situation, I advise taking the hit. You need to be strategic; giving yourself that extra 24 hours will allow you to sober up, shower, eat etc and think more clearly.

    I'd recommend taking ONE extra day, so if you can produce something that's a high 2:1 (67/68) you end up with a solid 2:1 (62/63). Alternatively, if you're someone who's usually capable of achieving good firsts, it's worth taking two days to get a mark of 75+ that will only come down to 65+.

    Good luck!

    That's a little off-topic :P By carefully saving scholarship and bursary money, and working part-time.

    Last off-topic question, how much was your tuition fee in your last year? I am guessing getting 9K together is not something folk nowadays can do.
