I use coloured postcards. It works great for me, as I do History. I jot down interesting research findings according to themes and designate a colour to each one. When I'm looking for something, I spread them out on a table and usually spy what I'm after quite quickly.

I applied in February and was supposed to receive an email yesterday, March 22, 2019, as stated in their application guidance:

"Finally, the applications which have passed the previous two stages are presented to the NWSSDTP Studentship Allocation Committee by the overall pathway lead. This committee will then decide on studentship allocation across the NWSSDTP. This NWSSDTP Studentship Committee will take place on the 13th March 2019.
b. Outcome of Application
Successful candidates will be informed by email by 22nd March 2019. If you are successful in being
nominated for an award, you will be asked to confirm by the 12th April 2019 whether or not you wish to formally accept the award. If you do not confirm by this date, the NWSSDTP reserves the right to reallocate the award.

The NWSSDTP Studentship Committee and the pathway leads will also agree a list of reserve candidates, and reserve candidates will also be informed by the 22nd March 2019. If you are selected as a reserve candidate you may still be offered an award should one of the successful candidates decline their award / fail to formally accept their award.
Candidates who reach the NWSSDTP Studentship Allocation Committee stage but are unsuccessful will also be informed by the 22nd March 2019. Due to the volume of applications, individual feedback will not be available."

I haven't heard a peep, though I know I made it to the 3rd round. Is anyone else waiting, or is it just me?

Has anyone applied for this years contest? If so, can you tell me whether they require a bibliography? I know they accepted applications without them a few years ago.

Oh I see. Do they have any 'shut up and write' sessions near where you live? Perhaps in a local library? A lot of people find them helpful. The pomodoro technique is also a useful writing tool (when you need that extra burst of productivity) though it wont be everyone's cup of tea: https://lifehacker.com/productivity-101-a-primer-to-the-pomodoro-technique-1598992730

Hi Samaylett, I wondered at the statement "But with little money for getting to the library etc I feel I am not getting enough done." Doesn't your institution have a digital collection of books, journal articles etc that you could access?

Pjlu was right. I received my results this morning: 84% for my dissertation. It's such a relief after such a long period of great stress. Good luck to anyone else getting their results this week.

Yes bewildered, that is the case at my institution. Nevertheless, some tutors do tell their students their marks prior to the official release date with the proviso, I think, that they must keep schtum.

Thanks Pjlu, the waiting is unbearable and my self doubt has reached its peak during this past week. I'm imagining all kinds of catastrophic scenarios. Both the research and the writing up have affected me physically and mentally. Now I don't think I could do a PhD, I couldn't take the stress of it.

Hopefully, I'll have some good news to post here on Wednesday :)

I just wondered if it was normal not to hear from your supervisor after handing in an MA/MRes?

Mine was handed in in September and the results will be released next week. What bothers me is receiving no feedback from my tutor before I receive the results. I have a feeling it doesn't bode well. Other people i've spoken to got their results a few weeks after they deposited their thesis.

Now I'm thinking my work did not warrant a response :(

With a good conclusion I think I may have got somewhere around the 75% mark. So I'm hoping that I will only receive a 5 per cent penalty, then I'll still get a distinction.

Thanks for the replies.

Hello everyone,

I handed my MRes in last week and I'm worried i'll get a poor mark because of my weak conclusion.

The introduction, methodology, lit review and first two chapters were fine. But the final chapter wasn't of the highest quality, and I only spent about one hour writing a 500 word conclusion for a 30,000 word thesis. Now I'm convinced that i've wasted almost a year and i'm going to receive a dreadful mark. I know there's nothing I can do now, but I cant stop thinking about it.

Has anyone else had a similar experience?
