I’ve been finding uni really stressful lately. This Friday I have a 2500 word Business Game group assignment due and the following Friday I have a 3000 word Consumer Behaviour individual essay due. Add to this placement applications and you get one very stressed Sophie.
For me, the most stressful part of all of this is group work. If your group don’t reply to your messages you don’t know where you are or if you’ll have to end up writing someone else’s work mere hours before the deadline. On the other hand, your group may be up to date on their work and you have nothing to worry about. But if they don’t reply you have no idea where you stand.
Fortunately the module leader for Business Game has set a rule that if all members do not submit their work to the group 48 hours before the deadline, the group has the right to not include their work in the project and that member must present/submit work alone or receive 0% for the work. My group has had to do this for one member already for the presentation, and now that the group Business Plan is due on Friday, we will see by midday if we suddenly have a massive amount of work to complete in the space of 2 days. Myself and the other 2 members have already completed our work ready for assembly, so now it is just a waiting game I guess.
