Afternoon dears,

Have a look at the SQA’s Understanding Standards website – it’s got example scripts and commentary from markers, so you can see what kind of thing scores well, and what needs more work.

This will help prepare you for your Literary Study essay next week.

Dissertation Text Ideas and Deadlines

Hi folks,

Below is a huge list of possible texts to consider for your dissertations – it’s also helpfully been divided by theme. This is not a restrictive list – don’t feel you HAVE to choose something from it, but it will give you an idea of the calibre of texts you should be selecting.

Dissertations

Hello folks,

Hope the holiday is going well, and that you’re getting a chance to relax amid all the work you’re obviously doing.

Still waiting on dissertations coming through from a number of people – you know who you are. I am more than happy to give advice and assistance, provided you give me time to do it. If you send it to me on Sunday expecting feedback by Monday morning, you will be disappointed.

On Monday, we will be completing our fly-leafs (fly-leaves? Who knows.) for the dissertations. I need EVERYONE to bring in the following:

  • A digital copy of their dissertation, with a COVER and FULL LIST OF REFERENCES¬†– see examples below.
  • A printed copy of the above, which you have checked over so very, very carefully.
  • Cakes, to celebrate (optional).
