There are a number of official and unofficial materials with instructions for writing bachelor’s and master’s theses. They usually contain information on the choice of the appropriate topic, leader, structure and content of the work and other steps to follow during the development. However, below you will find some tips and tweaks that are good to know and follow because they can even save your title, but they do not write so often.
1) Learn about faculty or university guidelines for writing final theses.
Most schools are freely available on their websites, and their knowledge can save you a lot of time with reformatting and reworking your work.
2) Learn to quote. If you study the internal guidelines of the school or the official citation standards of bibliographies and other sources, you have won. If you still fail, you can use one of the internet citation generators or a text editor generator.
3) Review the options and functions of your text editor. You will save a lot of time that you would otherwise spend by manually setting footnotes, bibliography, abbreviations, content, etc. Moreover, the majority of schools explicitly requires automatically generated lists, and it is no worse than formatting headings, tables, graphs before the day before submitting your work across work of 100 pages.
4) The theory is behind us, and now we will go into practice. Just before you, you have the most difficult but at the same time the lightest task – START.
5) Do not grow. Don’t waste time, because you don’t have that much. Disconnect from social networks. Work at short intervals and take frequent pauses. But work.
6) Ctrl + s is your best friend. Store, store, store.
7) Back up your work in several places. Whether it’s a Dropbox, a flash drive or an external drive, every backup is good.
8) Contact your supervisor regularly. He is one of the decisive members of the commission in defense and his opinion is important. It can hold and sink you if it goes stiff. Consult regularly, ask questions, recommend literature, etc. It pays off.
9) Write the work about one week in advance of the deadline and leave it closed for at least two days. Then read it thoroughly again. You will see how many errors and uncertainties you will find. But you still have plenty of time to fix them before submitting and printing.
10) Finally, let us make it clear that the final thesis is an official scientific document, which should also be reflected in its link. Avoid any excesses and “design gadgets” if you’re not a designer dealing with this issue in your work. Indeed, it may happen that packaging can take more than content, which is never beneficial.
