I'm up virtually every night.

I'm hoping to progress my thesis by 5 pages tonight.

Err. You have just managed to distract me for the last ten minutes reading about the declassification of Pluto as a planet.

Although not really transport-related, this is most certainly strucutral concrete and steel -related. Are you referring to the famous Pipe Line Under The Ocean? I learned about that in Year 6 :shock:

Shouldn't all you be revising and not haunting Internet forums? :P

That pluto, our lecturer says its been used by dft, if it has then there is no wonder the dft are useless!
The DfT would be much better of asking the experts (as opposed to quangos, pressure groups and charities) instead of using this information. They could do orse than joining this forum and asking for railway opinions... although actually, didn't someone from the DfT do just that once? (See here and here.)

Think I can act all smug now in saying I only have 800 words to write for Tuesday, then my next hand in isn't until after easter, and I'm ahead of schedule on my dissertation with only a couple more chapters to write. No exams either! :D

*Dives for cover* :lol:

Quit complaining. I had 6 of my 9 modules in semester 1, with the deadlines in mid January and February.



Mind you though - that means I can continue with my dissertation worry free now.



Nothing else is in until the end of April, final assignments in May - and my university degree is finished until my postgrad in September!

It times like this that I'm glad I finished all that last year! Although even then, my only hand in was in May (FYP) and exams after it. Semester 2 still has about 4 weeks left at the uni I was at!

Good luck!

I have until May to write 5000 more words to add to my dissertation (not including rewrites etc), broken down into:

  • Last chapter (2500 words)
  • Introduction (1500 words)
  • Conclusion (1000 words)

Along with giving a presentation on Monday, and revising for two exams in May.

So, anyway, best get back to the presentation (I'm at the library attempting to avoid writing up the script!)

Not gonna try and make people feel jealous, but not too much for me..

Just the one 1000 word essay on a french film for next Tuesday, then general revision for 3 exams in May.

Have had a couple of oral exams the past couple of weeks for French & Spanish though if they count!

How many in total? I'll be starting word 1 out of 25,000 in a few days.

A draft chapter of mine came in at about 6000

And I'm not in the position of "Project Manager" for this unit where we're playing a faux consultancy firm, and we're marked on how the group works together and then peer reviewed on that. What happened to being an Engineer?

Just had some more added to the pile with two formative robotics assignments that I get on Friday, and the university's marketing manager chasing me to be a face for the marketing campaign and I don't know if I can even be bothered emailing him back.

10,000. So it's doable I think. My dissertation is about the reasons for the collapse and bailout of British Leyland in 1976, specifically focusing upon the Ryder Report commissioned by Harold Wilson which proposed a blueprint for BL in the future. I'll briefly touch on the failings of the Ryder Report, in particular its excessive focus on labour relations.

When's yours due in?
