    I have noticed after completing my dissertation that they are some grammar errors such as repeated sentences, and emphasising words with quotes, to name a few. I'm worried in case I may fail as a result of errors such as this... Its not considered in the marking scheme on the university handbook. I'm still worried however that it may hinder my chances of passing :\ ?

    No dont worry. It takes away from the effectiveness, but it wont change the substantive impact of whatever you have writtem Repeated sentences seems a little careless. Didnt you proof it?

    I did go over it when I was finished but I was up for a full day almost, exhausted and never properly clicked on to the sentences that I've repeated until looking after :\

    Either way dont worry, it sounds like nothing. Were I in your position I would realise nothing can be done and just glad it was handed in.

    I think it was one of my best pieces of work... I think it made sense and came very natural to me. I gave my advisor a draft prior to the dissertation and he says it was very interesting, I just hope that he thinks the same for my dis.
