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?
