Essay's causing me ridiculous stress :( - December 3rd 2010, 10:11 AM

i'm really struggling with an assessed piece of work for uni.
It's based on published literature- and no matter how much i dig through the library i can't find anything relevant.
And then i don't understand how the proffesser want's it structured/styled like.
We havent even been presented with a proper question.

I'm just getting so stressed and upset over this. I'm running out of time and i don't know what steps to take to ensure i can actually do this :S

You don't have an actual question? Ouch. Do you have any sort of formal sheet, or guide to work of? I think that basically, look at what you do have and highlight ket words, and look for stuff like 'analysis' and the sort of 'meaty words'. Also, talk with other people in your class, thats probably the most important thing.

If none of that helps, go to the lecture or tutor, to try and work out what it's asking. They usually are willing and helpful

good luck!


Whats the point of having a rapier wit if I can't stab people with it?

Thanks for the reply. the questions just 'explaining theory'
and i've spoken to my tutor and people on ym course. And i still don't understand. I've done reading and made notes but i don't understand how to write the essay and reference every bit and it's all so complicated.

I don't know why i ever thought i was clever enough for uni. I can't do this
