I hate having to explain what my dissertation is on, It's not really easy to explain

It's about ethnic communities and gentrification in Greenwich Village in the 1950's and early 1960's, but I still haven't sorted my title really.

You've graduated right? How did your dissertation go? I'd like to get a 2.1 in this but I haven't done loads of work and not really sure how harsh they are with marking dissertations in comparison to normal essays.

Haha fair enough. Sounds interesting though.

I am the worst person to ask about dissertations because I did mine idiotically. Met my adviser once in December, then avoided him. Never confirmed my title with him or handed in drafts or anything. Wrote it in 4 or 5 days of non-stop carnage (also had other stuff due), handed it in a day late and ~1000 words short too it got 14/20 and I got my 2:1 but I underachieved tbh. I also sometimes wonder how I got through Uni at all

But yeah it'll come together nicely, everyone finds a way under pressure

You sound exactly like me to be honest I set myself 4 weeks for this dissertation which is reasonably fair (although most usually do a few months I think) But every essay I've done at uni has been an all nighter the night before. I have only seen my supervisor once and it was a mandatory meeting. I'm underachieving and it's only really 50/50 or maybe 60/40 that I get a 2.1 (a lot depends on the mark for this) so that's why I set myself a bit longer than I usually would. The week before Easter this term I had 4 essays in for the last day, and did 5 all nighters in a row #bantz

I've been to literally 6 lectures/seminars in the past year and a half as well. Nearly at the promised land now though, just need to keep grinding.

This. Every dissertation I have done completely screwed up my Schedule and was mainly done in the day just before i had a meeting with my supervisors.

Here if you hand in work after the deadline you're capped to 40% marks so if that was the same for you, you must have done really well elsewhere to get a 2:1.

Nah doesn't work like that at Aberdeen. I assume it was docked 1 point for being late and 1 point for being under the word count, so it was a 16/20 piece of work which is alright (yeah everything's out of 20). If the 40% thing was in effect I would definitely have got it in on time.

My degree was decided based on all my marks in 3rd and 4th year. So I ended up in a situation where, in 4th year, I needed one pass of 15/20 or more and the rest only minimal passes (9/20), from 8 courses. And without any real possibility of upgrading to a First. So basically my motivation went goodbye because I'd stopped enjoying Uni by that point.

i have a grant due monday at noon for the last real class I'll ever take in my life, thank ****. Cannot wait to just get into the normal research grind once classes and journal clubs and shit don't eat up a few hours of time every day.
