    Hi, I have missed out on a 2:1 grade overall in my degree by 0.2%. Luckily, I have a chance to re-submit my dissertation due to extenuating circumstances and only need a 1% increase in marks to achieve a 2:1 for my overall degree. My tutor has been completely unhelpful I wondered what everyone thought about a private tutor that could tell me specifically what needs to be improved and how I would go about doing so. If so, does anyone know anywhere these people may be hiding? I have been told that my last 2 chapters are too journalistic and not academic enough but this baffles me as to what exactly I need to do. To re-draft 10,000 words in a month is a huge undertaking. Does anybody have any advice or would look over it for me?
    Many thanks. Josh.

    Make sure that your last 2 chapters reference enough credible literature. Don't make any conclusions without the evidence to back them up.
