    Just under 9600 words altogether, and it was a Sociological assignment, based on the illness of Schizophrenia from a number of perspectives and case studies. Including my own.

    references are important. acknowledgements are just an exercise in bum kissing as far as i am concerned. And i really don't think that it will affect my grade too much, by leaving them out. After all i wrote my essay, and apart from my dad who proof read it once, i don't think i would have had anyone to mention. Plus he wsa always critical of nearly everything i wrote, so again yes, i don't think it matters too much.

    If you add me on facebook i will consider sending you a copy of the final draft okay?

    Have you done any first direct interviews/evidence collecting? Mine was purely a desk based exercise.

    Nope - my disso is literature based as I have mental health problems and would really struggle to collect evidence or research from other people.

    9600 isn't really that much.

    Yes, getting consent and overcoming the ethics form would be a nightmare for our projects! xx
