    OK YES i am ready I shall do it, thank you, now that I've promised someone I'll start I might actually do it.

    Alright guys, what point has everybody reached with their major work? I'm curious to know exactly how much work I'm supposed to be getting done right now.

    What we were told to hand in was a draft of the major work and the reflection statement – has to be at least 90% of the minimum word limit for whatever medium you're doing. It's getting marked as a draft so it doesn't have to be complete but I'd say, have the writing itself up to the standard that you'd want to hand in at the end even if there are bits and pieces missing. In the reflection statement make sure you have a clear direction of where you're heading with it if you haven't finished at this stage – basically what I was told to do since not really finished yet. (due tomorrow ;A A bibliography wasn't really specified but you might need one depending on the medium you're doing? Probably just do one in case idk.

    Didn't you get given a notification or anything for it? It might differ depending on your school so can't be 100% sure.

    ;A; Thank you, and no my teacher did not explain these things to me, as she would rather talk about wool and crime podcasts then my actual future. Ugh, there is so much I need to do, but thank you for giving me a headsup.

    Not sure if this would clarify things any more but here are the instructions that I was given:


    In accordance with BOS requirements for chosen medium, the Major Work

    draft
    submitted
    must be at least 90% of the minimum length stipulated. For example, the maximum

    length for the critical response is 5,000 words (4,000 minimum), so the submitted draft must be at least

    3,600 words. For the short story, minimum length is 5,000 words, so draft must be at least 4,500 words.


    You are to also compose a draft reflection statement where you provide an:

     Explanation of the intended purpose and audience of the Major Work

     Explanation of the impact of the extensive independent investigation

     Evaluation of the relationships of concept, structure, technical and language features and conventions

    Your draft reflection statement is to be between 750 words and 1500 words (maximum) in total.


    Still working on my draft haha 12 more hours until I need to hand it in :') Going to be way over the word limit at this point, so much to cut out .-.

    Omg I wish you good luck, and once again thank you, this has really helped. It feels really evil of me to say that I am so glad others procrastinate to my level as well, but it gives me hope to see other poor souls like me. May we all succeed and do well

    Finished trials last friday, since then I've just been editing and editing. ;A;

    Realised how little research I've actually integrated into my response - you see people with the page-long footnotes and I have like 5 throughout my whole piece omf ._. I've just been trying to cut everything down, already taken out a good ~800 words LOL

    The reflection statement is such an effort omf gonna end up getting 7/10 at most haha

    Ah, I'm so glad it's over!

    One thing though. I went through my major work so many times for grammatical errors, and I managed to find one after submission (something like "she the" in the middle of a sentence). :/

    How much will this affect my mark, does anyone know? I'm so frustrated by it!
