I was actually fine at undergrad and got 18,000 words with ease but my letters to get people to participate this time go unanswered.
I'm 18 (though in my first year of uni) - can I answer?

What are summative exams?
summative= the marks count towards the final year mark, opposite of formative which are basically mocks

Hope everyone here has a good Easter break I'm staying at uni until the end of the week and hoping to get lots of dissertation work done then. Also actually decided to apply for a graduate scheme so fingers crossed !

Does anybody have any good tips for how to get going with an essay that you're really not sure how to actually tackle?

It's 4000 words and politics-related, so there are endless amounts of conflicting information, it just seems impossible to bring it into a coherent and simple argument!

Have emailed the lecturer for help, but if anyone has any solid advice i'd love that too.

What is it? Are you struggling with a research topic?

(I ask because I am interested/concerned but please be aware I'm not likely to be any use at all!)

Getting enough schools to answer questionnaires and do focus groups. Only my old school consented to the latter.

Has your supervisor looked over the letter you sent out? I had a project once and I emailed a load of people I thought would be relevant. I didn't get any replies. My tutor wrote a letter with me (making me name drop her so they'd be encouraged to reply) and I actually got a few responses.

He read it but his field is different and he thought it was fine 😕 going to do coding so have all my questionnaires sorted.
