Its more actually writing the damned thing in the first place and feeling like I actually know nothing at all about the subject.

You should apply for extenuating circumstances now, not after anything. Go speak to someone about it.

Mm yeah, definately apply now! For my Masters I need a 2.2 or above but to get a bursary for most of the tuition fee I need a 2.1, it should be okay though!



And you say I only hear what I want to.

I have seven weeks left, I think. It's scary! I now don't know whether to go ahead and apply for the research masters at my current university but not get any funding (I could afford it though) or wait a year and apply for 1+3 funding.

Claire, I spoke to my year tutor and head of school about it already, here we have to apply for it after we have submitted all the work we want extenuating circumstances to apply for, as i haven't handed it all in yet i can't apply for it yet

Really starting to get annoyed now. I have an essay which should be fairly simple, but the question is unclear and the way I have interpreted it gives me pretty much no literature at all. I don't mind that we haven't covered it in lectures, that's fine, but it's gotten to the stage where I just have to make things up now.

I hate it when that happens! I've just done exactly the same in an essay question.

We have to start working on our dissertations now :(

That's not good, can you email the module tutor with an essay plan to see if you interpreted it right?

It's due tomorrow, so not really. I thought I had it, but read the question again last week and realised I was completely off-track. Guess I'll just need to hand it in as it is, which is rubbish!

I actually quite enjoyed my dissertation.

Oh dear, yeah. I hate when that happens.

My dissertation is really fun. My tutor said if you don't enjoy it, you must of picked something you're not interested in, I think that's quite true.



And you say I only hear what I want to.

There are different types of dissertation frustration. Some choose a topic where there is too much literature and can't wade through it to find what is relevant, others (like me) pick something that has little to no literature which can be difficult. Some choose methods which are hard to get concrete data from, but then others just pick something because it seems an easy topic and have no interest in it.

My course (Performing Arts) is stupidly demanding..
I do 9-6:30 Mondays, 9-5 Tuesdays, 9-7 Wednesdays, 9-5 Thursdays, then 9-1 Fridays, but they usually stiick extra stuff in Friday afternoons, and I have to do alot of weekends too.
It's a killer, then there's line learning, essays and presentations on top of that.
Kill me now.
Oh and to top it off STUDENT FRINANCE. Eurgh.
I didn't get ANY of my loan 'till January, after they messed up my application, deleted half of my details, lost my parents paper work etc.
In the end they didn't assess my parents earnings after 2 submissions of forms, so I don't have enough money to pay my accomm (£1000 short) and I'm depending on parents and overdraft to survive!
I applied for my second years lot of loans as soon as I could, so they have a longer amount of time to sccrew it up this year! Lol!

Woo! Just got an essay from last year back (lecturer writes his own essay-worth of comments/feedback on each one so takes ages!) and I got a top first! I am so incredibly happy! Yay!

Well done Claire :)

It seems alot of you have to write essays, it sounds hard. But then i am doing maths, which everyone laughs at, and i have 6 exams next term lol.
Also got to start working on my first ever uni essay for a history module i am doing this term, im not really sure how to set it out and present it!

I am still bouncing about it. I can't quite believe it.

For essays they're quite simple once you know what you are doing with them. I'd suggest getting a hold of some examples, maybe some history journal articles or something. Just to give you some ideas.

I have a fortnight until my dissertation deadline, in that time I pretty much have to write the whole thing and then get it bound. This is ridiculous, I've been thinking about my dissertation and planning it since summer, but none of that work has translated into anything I can hand in, it's worth 25% of my degree, so erm, yeah. I'm really going to have to pull this out of my arse. That, and I have some assessed presentations coming up just before the deadline.

I really can't wait for this to be over tbh, and here's to hoping that I get this work done in time.
