I spoke to several students studying Physical Geography who, whilst their structures were similar to mine, were analysing vast amounts of numerical data.
In contrast, my project focused on qualitative data and so my tutor advised me to concentrate on the discussion section which would draw on theories to contexualise my data.
I found that my discussion section could have continued for another few thousand words and it was very difficult to delete key quotes from interviews and remain concise throughout.
I think critical analysis and editing are perhaps the most important skills I learnt from the project and things I will take forward into my future work.
Problems arose however, when I began the second stage of my research with an online survey created on Survey Monkey.
I aimed to get 50 participants but only achieved 28.
Writing the thesis involved a lot of moving sections around whilst trying to maintain a steady flow.
I found this one of the hardest and most time consuming parts of the project.
Even though I advertised it on my social media pages (Twitter and Facebook) and in society emails, the response was fairly disappointing.
In hindsight I would have opened the online survey much earlier in the year and kept it running for longer than a month.
