    I see

    Me too, I should be completing coursework that's due on Monday but I'm majorly procrastinating
    There's no motivation at all! But I'll probably end up finishing and submitting it tomorrow (Or I face a 40% cap).
    40% cap for late submission? That's so harsh. At my uni you'd just have 10 marks deducted and another week to do it, sometimes it was actually beneficial to take the hit and get another week to do it.

    I did all my essays the day before though, with the exception of my dissertation. It was the only way I could ever motivate myself to get the work done, especially in my 3rd year. 1st year you could get away with doing the whole thing in bed and using Google books.

    Yeah! A 40% cap for late submission within a week of the deadline. After a week late 0% of it is accepted. Ahh yes, a History graduate so essays left, right and centre! It's just all the citing and referencing that's taking long...Have to get stuff from a range of sources. *Sighh*

    I dunno tbh, he might've done.

    You guys are lucky though, my uni you fail if not in time, no second chance!

    Everyone says referencing is hard at first, do it once and you'll be fine.

    You're not doing it as you go are you? I'd always just put a note as I was writing it, so 'Arsene Wenger: A History of Arsenal in the 20th Century, page 27' just becomes 'Wenger p27'. Once you've done the essay, just write the whole thing out once (e.g Wenger, A.; A History of Arsenal in the 20th Century (London, 2001)) and then it's a simple copy/paste job.

    See I did this, then it took me a whole day (8 hours ) to sort it all out. We had to BMJ reference so I had to trawl back and find issue numbers/volumes etc ffs.

    Can't you get that from the source though? For example most of mine were on JSTOR and they had an option to view a citation.

    Thing is, I'm used to referencing because they made us do it all the time for A-level English literature but we could use any system we liked e.g. Harvard. But for uni, we absolutely HAVE to use the Oxford OSCALA system and that's a bit different.

    I do it as I go using the footnotes facility on word. Think I'll try your suggestion though.

    For a lot of them yeah, just the order was a bit messed up (in terms of you have to put author, date, journal article and journal title in certain order). I just used a website generator though

    Got interview for marketing firm through hustle. Just persisted and was a nuisance.
    Nice. I got an interview for another recruitment team. Think I need to focus on my interviewing skills. This is a pretty sick opportunity since the guys I am recruiting if I get the job are C level candidates.

    Sick, I have worked out that once I get interviews I have a great chance of getting the job. A lot of it is down to rapport imo, the competency part is important obviously but that is a given that you are well prepared for those types of questions.

    I really want to work for this firm because they have Barbour and Mulberry as clients, a perfect opportunity to develop links with the British fashion industry. Been scoping out the marketing guys at those companies so I know the terrain. This is a great stepping stone if I get it.

    Think I'll take them all bar the guy. Seems like an old picture so they'll have grown.
