A dissertation, as it seems, is a long task. Long is just a short word that defines a dissertation. It is a document that highlights and reflects the research work that has been done by a researcher in order to find answers to the questions, which are an important part of the dissertation study. The research questions are an important part of the study. These are the ones that actually define the whole research study. The research approach that is adopted by the researcher is also based on these research questions.The question remains, how does one complete his 10,000 words dissertation with a deadline of only one week. 
Here’s the answer! One week is a lot. Curious to know how, here’s how. The top is to get organized and organize the dissertation itself. With one week, the dissertation must be divided in certain sections that can be completed in some days. there tare chapters of dissertation as introduction/background, literature review, research methodology, results, findings and discussions, and conclusion. These the length of the chapters is based on weight age of the chapter. Here is how the 10,000 word thesis can be broken down into sections for more organization.

2 days for rechecking and arranging the table of contents/appendices, and figures.

2 days

Introduction/background: 2000 words

1 day

Literature review: 3000 words

1 day

Research methodology: 1500 words

1 day

Results: 2000 words

Findings and discussion: 1500 words.

This is the breakdown that helps in getting organized. With seven days in hand, one can manage bothchapter in almost two days. For this purpose, more time is required for the literature search. The search should be specific and to the point. With the deadline in hand, the literature search should be done in one sitting. With this literature, two main chapters will be covered, introduction and literature review. These are the two main chapters that can be completed in three days.

One moment needs to be taken and decisions need to be taken about the research methodology. Once the decisions are made, the chapter of research methodology can be started off. It needs to be completed within a day. This is possible as the word count of this chapter is lesser. Once the research and the research methodology has been decided, the complete makeup of the results also becomes clear to the researcher. This chapter thereby becomes possible to be completed in one day.

The last chapter that also can be completed in a day is the findings and discussion. This is the final chapter that is the total summary of all the above mentioned chapters. Thereby it becomes easier for the chapter to be compiled in a shorter period of time.

The dissertation is not only about writing and compiling the mentioned chapters. It is about organizing the content that is the part of the thesis. The real time is required for designing the table of contents and the tables or figures in the dissertation. This can take almost two to three days. there you have it! Dissertation completed in one week.
