Hi everyone, I wanted to ask that Whether I can Manage both OBU project and P7 in a single session becoz am thinking to submit my thesis before upcoming november! Secondly how can I ensure to b safe from plagiarism and finally how long it takes to complete the thesis when done alongwith a mentor? Regards!
It depends how motivated you are to do both. The last date for submission is 20th November if I am not wrong. so you have rest of the days to revise for P7.
However if you already have a mentor then that's really good. But if you don't have one, you better start looking for one now. Once you have found your mentor, you need to fix your first meeting with your mentor to discuss with him what you are planning to do and which company you are focussing on and how do you intend to do it. He will then add his suggestions. As long as your research work is your own work and you put it in your own words, then you can easily avoid plagiarism. It totally depends upon how quick you can do it. If you are resourceful and your source of information is good, then you should not worry. It will be easy for you to collect information.
In second meeting you will discuss your progress with your mentor and in last meeting you are to deliver a 15 minutes presentation and discuss the wrap up of your research work. Very important point to note is that your Learning Statement is of equal importance as your Research Report.
Hope it was helpful.
Save yourself from plagiarism as much as you can and even investigate and inspect the sources suggested by your mentor , have not been used a lot by students on similar topics before. Most of all this is for all students that chose a mentor wisely who is not acting more like a dominator then a facilitator , you by all means should be active on the topic yourself.
