Thanks Hey peeps, I was wondering if anyone knew whether a student who fails their dissertation (for the degree of MSc) is notified by e-mail in advance, before the dissertation results come out?Should I expect my notice of failure when all the results come out together, or will they notify me before they post the results? You'd probably be better off making your own thread on this in the correct university forum (this is Aberystwyth so if you're there then it's just a case of going back to where you found the thread and clicking "Start New Thread" at the top. Thanks minimarshmallow Hi Guys, what you could do is go to your doctor and tell them your finding university very challenging and tell them you feel pressured and perhaps are suffering from some anxiety related behaviours. I feel like my Geology dissertation is going to go horribly, my work seems so much simpler than others, eg 7 rock units when other have 12, not enough structural data...I am a wrecking ball, and I am on edge till the results come out.
Results for the dissertation should be out soon, since enrolment for graduation starts from the first week of October and ends in the last week.

Trust me when I say that 20 days is enough to do well in your dissertation, mine was done in less than half of that.
Gives me mini heart attacks even thinking about what I went through now and wondering what grade I'll end up with.
Be a bit more optimistic, don't think you've failed.
If your struggling I'd really advise you to see your dissertation supervisor/tutor, they really do help.Hi guys, seeing you discuss dissertation trouble, I was wondering what is your general opinion on dissertation experience?I'm just about to make the decision on whether or not to take one next year instead of a module and I really don't have any clue if a dissertation is going to be useful for masters/phd/job opportunities. Hi guys, seeing you discuss dissertation trouble, I was wondering what is your general opinion on dissertation experience? I this time last year it was dissertation proposal time and I was dreading and I mean DREADING starting and completing the thing for real...in part to my tutor who wasn't the most approachable or helpful. My original tutor left the department, and so I requested in the summer holidays, my tutor of choice and I got her!I would look at the uni's website or something, I'm sure it says it there at my uni. I don't think anyone will have been in a worse situation than me when it comes to dissertations.I actually had to hand mine in the day after the deadline.I've checked the module information on the uni site and it states as supplementary assessment that re-submission of dissertation is 100%.I'll email the co-ordinator nearer the hand-in date to see if thats an option if needs be.I know i'm allowed to fail 60 credits but I don't think that includes the diss. Please help, i don't really want to enquire at the university. got 19 days left and done only 2500 words I really think i'm going to fail it too, everyone i know on my course is waayy ahead of me.I don't know what to do either, sorry for being no help at all.Thanks for your help I would ask my tutor but he's completley useless, it's only due to him that i've had four failed proposals now.He basically told me to go away with a tonne of data he's given me and now I have to pull statistics out of a hat.
