For my masters dissertation, we are allowed very few supervisory reviews. In spite of several attempts, only one review materialised, in which the following comments were provided. How am I to interpret this? I went over and beyond the supervisors work and made some suggestions, did that tick him off? Has he read my dissertation? or are these generic comments?
Many thanks for this. I’m impressed by how much you have accomplished, especially in terms of data collection (although it has not been possible for me to independently assess the validity and reliability of your data, needless to say.) If you have the time, I suggest you carefully read the assessment regime that applies to assessing your dissertation, and then rewrite and edit until the dissertation clearly meets the criteria set out here, and especially the ones related to getting top marks. It would be great to see your dissertation get distinction. I also suggest you spend more time (if you have it) at the outset explaining carefully what your main questions/theses are, and then return to these in the conclusions and systematically explain how you have answered the questions/tested the theses and what your findings are. I hope this is useful and wish you the best of luck in completing your dissertation. Please do send me a copy of the final version.
