    Hi,

    I have an essay due tomorrow (well, Monday but I am traveling on Monday morning abroad) and it's 2500 words.

    I am a third-year student - I have done a lot of reading, feel OKAY with the topic... my ideas are in my head but just writing right now is AWFUL.

    So, I have taken my notes and placed them into word and printed this out to sort of know where to put things etc.

    I have tried writing since Monday and honestly, just had a major brain block.

    I usually get really stressed when an essay is due but right now I can't stop relaxing! Is it possible that I am f*ucked? Can I pull this off at a really high standard... it's worth 50...

    Planning on writing a first draft up until 6am and then nap... wake up again to rewrite the whole thing (this is how I work), sound unrealistic?

    I have A LOT of energy drinks with me lol.

    plan and execute. seriously just get it done. turn off your phone and devices then start working. don't stop working until it's done.

    look, if i can learn and revise a GCSE subject the night before and get an A*, you can so do a 2500 word essay in les than 24 hours, that's a lot of time! just focus and get it done! you can do it man!

    Yes but the longer you sit around waiting for replies, the less time you have. Get on with it

    It is possible. Just organise your thoughts first, get them on paper in some form, and then stress about perfecting the essay format/expression.

    I mean , I can’t imagine how you’re not feeling it because it’s due so soon :laugh: . I’m allllmost as bad as you , but I’m doing a masters now and the word counts tend to be higher (and all due on the same day) so I can’t really afford to leave it but in the third year of my undergrad I did leave a big 5000 to do over one night and it was horrendous but I did it. Tryyyyy and make the most of this time you have , you’ll thank yourself afterwards.

    If you have 40 sources and know the structure I think you’ll be able to bang it out quite quickly ! Again... good luck !

    You've prepared with sources, that's the main bit. Shutting yourself in a room and hacking out 2.5k words with that preperation isn't too bad.

    Doing it at a first class standard, not sure, didn't quite manage that level personally, but good luck!
