My thesis is in applied science and I have a word limit of 40,000 for the main body of text and abstract. My thesis is just a few hundred short of the max limit where I have 9,000 words for my intro/lit review and the remainder in four methodology chapters and an overriding discussion. With all of the extra bits such as contents, declarations, acknowledgements, figures, tables and appendices I have a total of 54,000 words but obviously these don't count for the word limit, phew!
