    I'm in my final year of uni and everything has gone wrong, if I manage to actually graduate I will come out with a 3rd which is useless to me in the career I want to pursue.

    I was told yesterday by my dissertation supervisor that because I've waited so long to get my data I need to find double the participants (36) everyone else has, to stay in the group data 'pool' (despite the fact that others still haven't finished yet). There is no way I can do this as I still haven't found 16.

    If I can't find these participants then I basically cant complete my dissertation which will obviously result in me failing the year, having to re-sit the year capped at 40 resulting in a 3rd overall which puts me back at square one.

    I've been wrestling with the idea of transferring to another uni, I know that they will not let me transfer into the 3rd year but am unsure if they will let me transfer into the 2nd year, meaning that at least I wont have to re-do the entire 3 years again.

    The problem is if they don't let me transfer at all do I just go and re-do my entire 3 years at uni, starting all over again, having wasted nearly 3 years of my life?

    I will be 27 by the time I finish uni

    1 extra thing: if I apply through UCAS how do I put on the grades for the modules I have received in my 1st and 2nd years and 3rd year so far?

    Can we not assist by participating in your dissertation online in some way?

    Would a good dissertation not pull your grade up to a 2/1?

    When I 1st chose my dissertation that was exactly what I hoped to do but unfortunately there is a massive pile of questionnaires that need to be filled in which are being held hostage by my dissertation supervisor who is now not replying to my emails begging her to let me have them.

    I also need half my participants to come to my uni lab to take some tests so no online help there either

    Ah, gutted. Your supervisor sounds like a right ****!
