    My postgrad dissertation for Accountancy and Finance was supposed to be 11000 or 12000 words minimum. I managed just over 10,000 words. Other than that I have less than 20 references in total. Including books and journal articles. I used a content analysis on annual reports of major companies in the UK but my findings section is less than 1500 words.
    Literature review and methodology is nearly 7000 words.
    I wrote a conclusion in the last few hours which was just over 600 words.
    My work is original. Similarity index is next to nothing.
    Problems with the work are brief work especially in the findings section as I used a smaller sample and a small number of references. Bcu students help me out here, what are my chances?

    If you've submitted it then there's no point worrying. What's done is done.

    If you haven't submitted it yet, then you've identified some areas which could be worth looking at in a bit more detail.

    This is PG work so you don't need us to guess your chances. You've got access to the mark scheme and presumably had progress meetings with your supervisor, so you should be much better placed than anyone here to know how you'll do.

    that is the problem, due to some personal reasons and difficulties I couldn't attend many meetings with my supervisor. I've seen different marking schemes and I'm hoping I pass somehow. Just trying to know other students' observations and experiences here. Thanks though
