    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.
    LOL a 5000 word economics essay at Warwick. I assume this was his final year dissertation as the curriculum is basically mathematical.

    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!
    Wow, that's generous.

    I went to Birmingham Conservatoire and then Birmingham University and both just capped at 40% if you were even a minute late.

    Honestly, the whole "heroics" about writing so many words on the last day is one of the naffest things to brag about.

    You've had the same time as everyone else, if you leave it all to the end and just write a load of crap to get the words in, there's nothing big about it.

    This is the kind of stuff that ends up leading to people saying "government lied to us about university" when they can't get a decent job afterwards.

    we could write it online and everyone could contribute 100 words, quite why you leave it this late is a bit mind boggling.

    When did your teacher announce about the essays? I bet, it's a week or two ago. As how I see it, no one can write 8 substantial essays in a day. It should have been one essay each day.

    I think you're going to struggle to be honest with you. There are definitely lessons to be learned from this one students!

    Depends. Gender studies nonsense? Yeah, no problem. Physics? Definitely not.
    Actually my physics dissertation was relatively short at 3378 words.

    I had spent two semesters doing lots of lab work and filling in a lab book however. Writing the thing was relatively easy as I was basically just writing up what I had already done. Just had to transfer what was in my lab book to PC in a readable comprehensible form, mash up a lit review I had already mostly done in various bits and pieces, copy and paste in some graphs and results, write an analysis and conclusion. Job done

    You could hire 8 people to write one thousand words of the essay each.
    Sounds legit
