    Follow the instructions, be organised and start on things like your lie review and methods early on, analyse results as you go along, think of your stats methods, spend time on your discussion and don't leave it till the last minute and get as much feedback as possible.

    I'm at the point where I've finished writing everything up but I need to tweak it as I don't think it's currently at a first level, maybe a mid 2.1 at the moment. My discussion is what I'm struggling with the most as a lot of my critiques of my work sound like what a GCSE student would write. For example one of my results goes against current literature, but it was only based on one data point but writing "needs more replicates" sounds so basic.

    At this stage it is all down to feedback and reading what people before you have done maybe if that is possible. In some cases you do have to say it as it is and don't make massive unrealistic claims.
