    Oh wow that sounds hard! We don't have to hand in drafts as far as I know, its just optional to get your project supervisor to check it and he was saying to get it done by the end of easter so I'm aiming for that!
    I've been making my plan in terms of sections rather than words so I don't get really stressed if I haven't written enough :lol: My reward is online shopping haha
    I love those bursts of motivation! They make you so productive :lol:
    my supervisor wants a draft of my whole dissertation in 2 weeks time, but I want it to be a good draft hence the drafts of sections to the Mres student I've been working with :lol:

    They really are

    What degree/ dissertation are you doing if you don't mind me asking?

    I'm getting through it! It's stressful as well as having to prepare a viva and another essay

    I'm doing biological sciences and my dissertation is comparative pharmacology based titled: 'How does prostaglandin E2 modulate purinergic signalling in human monocytes and macrophages?'

    It was about 9 weeks collecting data in a lab followed by not too long to write it up :lol:

    Okay so huge dissertation progress this week!

    I'm 15 pages in overall and I've managed to battle out my introduction and now I'm more than halfway through my word count for my dissertation at a word count of 3718 words!
    however, I'm struggling with a paragraph of how to introduce a gap in the knowledge and bring in my project I've looked at examples but I'm at a loss

    I have about 2000 words for my discussion, at the moment I'm on target with doing a section a week and getting a draft done for my supervisors deadline.
    Just need to get an essay done as well...and prepare my viva....:cry2: it never ends

    Two hours for one article sounds like a long time - are they very lengthy? Are you taking too many notes? Or are you getting distracted?

    You need to read widely but sensibly otherwise it will take forever. A good idea is to start with the introduction and conclusion to see if it's relevant for you: if it is, go through it quickly to double check and if it looks good then give it a proper read through while taking notes. When you're taking notes you don't need to write down everything, only the stuff that's absolutely relevant for you and you think you'll use in your dissertation.

    Make sure you get as much rest as possible. Hopefully it isn't glandular fever but don't overdo it just in case

    Hey

    I'm a psych student, I was just wondering whether anyone has had to submit a draft of their dissertation for feedback? I have received feedback for mine but if it's very brief, she just mentions minor errors like spelling and described the dissertation as a whole as being 'really good'.
    I just wish I know what grade 'really good' indicates as they're not allowed to tell us what grade we're on track for .

    I'd really appreciate if anyone could help

    I'm allowed to submit a draft dissertation and will be doing so when I return to university...I still have about 2000 words left to write though :erm: I'm not sure what to expect in terms of feedback as I've been submitting drafts to an Mres student who got a first with my supervisor, but he's now been away in New York for 2 weeks and I won't have time to send him a bulk of my dissertation which is what I'm worried about

    I done 7500 of my 8000 which is due in in three weeks time, almost done and then I got the editing process but am fairly happy with it so far. At my university we only allowed to show our supervisor around 2000 words of our dissertation for them too look over, am yet to do this.

    Hi guys,

    Just wondering if anyone knows of theories that could help with analysing the economic impact of London 2012?

    Ive just got my conclusion to write now but my supervisor has suggested adding in some more theory to help support my concluding remarks and recommendations. My four themes are legacy, employment, tourism & re-urbanisation.

    Any help would be greatly appreicated
