    Because you know you can do it, and you know it's worth it in the end.

    I guess asking how the essay's going is a silly question?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Hahahahaha! Well I'm upto 1000 words only 500 more. But everything I'm typing doesn't feel substandial. I can't remember words or how to phrase anything. Looks like a stoner has written it. :impissed: Everything is so hard lately. Mega peed with disability dept especially cuz they have some advisor who has turned up half an hour late both times she has had to see me. Then tries patronising me with 'I think dyslexic people are the smartest people everrrrrr!!!' Not amused at alllll.

    500 words is nothing! You can do it :). If you want, I'll have a look at it when you're done? I'm sure you'll be fine though.

    Cast your mind back to the time you were doing your A-Levels. Now, I don't know exactly what subjects you did, but I'm pretty certain that you would have had to write some essays along the way. How many of those would you now consider "substantial"? How many of those can you remember doing? Probably very few, but did you have any trouble doing those? If not, treat this in exactly the same way.

    I wouldn't worry, I've written some absolute SHOCKERS in my time. It's only one essay, and I'm sure you've done, and will do again, much better ones. Is this one worth anything? If not I wouldn't stress too hard :).

    Because you want to get a good career and have as much right to go to uni as the next person. :)

    I can sympathise with the essay length, some topics can be really hard to strech out. Just write as much as you can on paper then read it again to check if everythings OK.

    sg I didn't do a levels. Just a year doing my access course.

    I know thanks everyone it's just so frustrating right now. I'm trying to get all my thoughts out but it's such a mish mash of poo

    You CAN do it. Be positive otherwise it WILL turn out badly. At least if you stay positive you know you've done your absolute best.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    i know i have to try think positive

    our seminar leader is marking it nicely she said cuz it's our first essay involving critical theory plus it is first year so the marks wont go towards anything

    Well there you go :). Stressing about it will just make it worse. Good luck!

    Okay, but how many of the things you wrote during your access course can now be considered masterpieces? That isn't a criticism - it's to get things into perspective. Ultimately, it's just an essay. Mind you, this is coming from the man who's so embarrassed about his old A-Level essays that he actually burnt them. :p

    I don't know you especially well, but what I am aware of is that you are much stronger than you give yourself credit for.

    Try not to fret too much about essays now, you're not expected to get things right, you're still expected to be learning about what you're writing about.

    Everyone has the same worries about university. Hell, I had a nervous breakdown in my final year which meant that I wrote about two words towards my dissertation. Ah well, still got a 2.1 for it :D

    You aren't meant to be excellent already, you'll pick up skills and in time you'll be producing ace essays. Are you even assessed formerly this year?
