You should have been writing up drafts of your work as you proceeded with the research, so that: You do not have to write the whole thesis or dissertation up in a rush at the end (a very daunting task) You will have worked out some of the difficulties and some of the complex thoughts and expression as you write Some of your work could be shared with a supervisor and some published or delivered at conferences/to your peers at ‘work-in-progress’ sessions. Think about the writing of your thesis or dissertation as ‘telling the story’ of your aims, questions, the context in which your work has been set, the research methods and research work carried out, and the findings resulting from your research. It also makes a point about why you carried out the research and what kind of a contribution the research makes to knowledge in the field. It is like a story following a route or plan, and it shows development and achievement.
