    Did any of you get yours bound and printed on the day of the deadline?

    Questioning whether to give myself more time but risk having a stressful hand-in day. Or finish without perfecting it but at least have peace of mind that it's sorted.

    Getting it printed and bound on the day of the deadline is asking for trouble. Aim for at least 48 hours before, for everything, just edit faster and more effectively to ensure that is possible.

    bear in mind that you're probably not the only one with that deadline. if your uni is binding it for you, think how many others they'll have too so get it in, in time to have it ready. print shops will have similar issues too.

    I finished mine officially (proof read and checked) 3 weeks before mine was due in, but I have other reports to complete which are a month away *gasps*, I still would not of got it bounded that early though, I’d say a week before the deadline is comfortable enough for me.

    Yeah I was hoping to get it sorted the day before but my dissertation supervisor hasn't given me feedback yet. I can imagine him replying just after I've had it all printed and bound.

    Do you have to bind it? Many unis just have electronic submission these days.
