oh okay.

well this is just a first year uni assignment, so i guess its not really hard in that sense... hoping to get at least a decent mark though :jedi:

hmm, do u go to macq? coz assignments are marked like Pass, Credit, Distinction, High Distinction etc. i dont think we use A's, B's, C's etc anymore at uni...

Um... Why are you asking us? It's not like you have any choice but to just do it.

Nobody here can help you if they don't know the nature of the assignment.

Get used to it, because most of the time you are given less than 10 days

one day should be enough...
I just had 2 assignment & 1 midsemester on the same day last week so shouldn't be a big problem.. Don't need to do a lavish job-you have more things to do other than assignment!

12 hours research reading and writing. 3000 words max.

more than 3000 words and you might need 24 hours.

that will get anywhere from a p to a d.

Read some of the LLB threads and you'll see it is.

That said, IWR is the god of last-minute essay writing :)
some people just work like this. it only becomes a problem when there is physically too much work to do in the amount of time and it is ACTUALLY impossible to do.

i know quite a few people who do the all nighters and actually get d's and hd's sometimes. unless they're lying to me. i really wish i had a stop motion video camera everytime i do an assignment.

:(

i'm going to be so lonely when i make my IT law and enviro law essays.

enviro is actually hard! 3000 words for both assignments!

but then it is only 1500 for the first one so thats awesome.

have u guys ever worked on an assignment n 10 days or less and got a good mark in it?
:rofl: I love the question.
10 days? Recently, we only ever got 14 days to do an assignment.
My general rule, to do well for 1500 word essay and to not be working under pressure, was give yourself a few nights to research and think logically about your argument and where the research is going (or a day, but it gets awfully tedious). A day to write it up. A day just in case last minute editing needs to be done.
