I'm currently studying for a masters in a top 20 UK uni. I wanted to ask this - how long do you generally take to write an essay? My grades last semester were very good but I kind of feel I spent way too long on my essays and it probably wasn't worth it.
I know people lie, but it seems people do theirs in three or four days and don't get significantly worse marks - a friend told me he rewrote his lecture notes, added a few references and got 72!
Do people find that rattling off essays in a week or so makes much difference? its a very reputable uni but marking criteria seems all over the shop. Thoughts?
Or does it play no part?
