i thought it was only 1000...it has to be in tomorw by 4pm and ive only done a third of it...HELP ME!
the 10% rule:
you can go within ten percent of the suggested number without incurring any penalties
thus the word count needs to be 1350
you may have just saved my life...wots the penalty if its just 1000?
dont do it
The adverb game
go through your entire essay. every single adjective you see, add an adverb to it.
the synonym game
relace every long word in your essay with a series of shorter words
i got a 2:1 doing this
2:1 isnt as good as 1st
i probably could have gotten 1st if i wasnt a lazy, DiSaddicted cunt
you can lie on your word count if you dont submit soft copies. only lie within 100 words.
if they call you up on it, just say that the word count was before editing and you fucked up SORRY
will they count or am i meant to write it on the page?
at uni, along with having to do bibliographies (which they will NOT be happy for you to include in the word count, but that is another tactic), its generally a requirement to list your word count
as long as it's comprehensible and a decent essay?
i barely ever met my word counts.
or just include the bibliography.
the hoop-jumping based education system.
thats nothing. kids nowadays, etc.
piece of piss. If you're struggling, just cut n paste some nonsense from these boards
this doesn't sound like a crisis situation :P
I would suggest you use this FINE RESOURCE
it constructs, from scratch, essays full of pretentious nonsense and NOBODY can tell them from the real thing.
just write it and stop complaining.
i've got to write 2000 words for a magazine by 500pm on the most boring subject in the world, and im not moaning. well, just slightly.
