In first year of uni and have just had to give in my first essay which is between 20-30% of one of the 5 modules I have.
I feel like I’ve pretty much ****ed it up as it’s probably one of the worst essays I’ve ever written and I had to give it in late as I wouldn’t have finished it in time for the deadline so I’ve lost between 10-20 marks for that and tbh I don’t really care as even if I had those extra marks I would have still have done badly.
It’s just gone wrong from the start as the idea of choosing to do an essay on pretty much whatever topic I want is stressful for me. It took me slightly more than 2 out of the 3 weeks we had to do the essay to even come up with a question.
If all my essays are going to be like this I just wanna drop out right now because there’s no way I’m gonna get good grades at this rate.
Also my situations kind of hard because I’m doing a foundation year at a uni I currently hate and want to move to a uni in a bigger city but they all require a 1st or a high 2:1 to transfer uni so I’m basically very unmotivated now as I feel like I’m either gonna have to leave uni or stay at the one I’m at now which like I said I hate.

Everyone's first essay is ****. There's plenty of time and plenty of opportunity (and hopefully plenty of help) to improve. What module was it that had you do an essay on whatever topic you wanted?

Yeah I feel a bit better knowing this is only one out of five modules.It’s a module called introduction to humanities but we learn more about essay writing tequiniques etc in the seminars (tbh I don’t get the point of the module as we don’t learn anything technically) We do stuff like how to debate on topics and presentations as well.
