    Loads of bad dissertations have been written and yet there are many to be written. It seems some students set up their minds while writing a dissertation to come up with the worst dissertation ever been written. The great dissertations are so rare that dissertation of a bad quality overtakes the high quality dissertation in huge numbers.

    Do you want to know how students help themselves to write bad dissertations?

    Here are some dissertation writing mistakes that help students to come up with the worst dissertation one of its own kind:

    1. Surrounding themselves with in-agreement people: Doctoral students have a habit to surround themselves by like-minded people who think just like them. Although, this habit help themselves a lot in writing a dissertation but they become deprive of the views that may stand out their dissertation as a challenge to be accepted among the better ones; ultimately, their dissertation writing seems ordinary.

    2. Selecting the topic just for them: Many students convince themselves about the topic they choose without bearing in mind about recent periodicals or dissertations. Who knows the topic that appears fascinating to them become out dated?

    3. Continuing with a broader scope and vague terms: Many students can’t kept their breadth in a broader scope of dissertation writing as they run after more than one ideas to finish their dissertation as early as possibly without considering about the consequences.

    4. Holding back the creativity by ignoring the outline: An outline serves as a roadmap to dissertation but students are used to of ignoring the dissertation outline that they don’t even think to plan their dissertation writing.

    5. Confining to restricted bibliography: It appears that students refer to bibliographies that support their point of view only. They ignore that the purpose of dissertation is to study a valuable question and not meant to prove your point of view.

    6. Presuming that anything not written in English worth nothing! Students don’t even try to value the literature written in any language other than English that help themselves in writing an incomplete dissertation; hence their literature review remains a mystery.

    7. Declaring statements by force and not by proof: Many students don’t even think to justify their statements regarding their dissertations on the basis of proof. They think that the way to make an impressive statement is to outcry the side of evidence.

    8. Why to proofread and waste your time? At times, students prefer to cut out the proofread that prevent their dissertation writing to be free of weak arguments, ideas or spelling mistakes.

    9. Why should the assistance of experts be taken? It’s a general observation that the students avoid to take assistance of experts about their dissertation topics so that they can get help from them regarding the aspects of their work.

    10. Proving the point at all cost: Loads of students use fake methodologies, false evidence and forced arguments to prove their point at all cost whether it’s right or wrong that lead their dissertation to be rejected.

    These were the common mistakes that doctoral students make most of the times. Are you one of them?

    Some interesting postulations, however the key problem is that these young people have not been properly trained. They have not had a solid grounding in the understanding and use of English (or any other language), they have not been trained in using their minds to their fullest, to be inquiring and observant. Too often in a society acclaimed novel, I have started the first chapter, only to discover it is poorly written, a perverse structure, with no research and no likelihood of probability in science or in social interaction. The book is added to the next charity collection bag. Education in these times does not reflect the world in which we live. Too many narrow roads for young minds to follow, and the object? Not to educate, but to gain levels and to jump hoops for the schools. The best educator is for the young person to become aware that life is not about gaining points. It is about learning life skills. Skills that will benefit a wide understanding and unification, whilst retaining a secure sense of identity.
    I have seen the websites declaring help in dissertation writing - without ploughing through journals and books. That is a big mistake, life is about ensuring that value is placed on your self, your work and the results. I would rather read a half complete, well written piece than a complete badly written piece. It should not about producing a compositional discussion within a limited period of time - it should be about giving the youngsters sufficient skills and awareness to become very useful members of society, having an understanding of the wider issues of this world and to be able to gather facts and people together, for their mutual benefit. Take a look at the writings of Cicero or Plato, they were incisive thinkers. Minds are more important than getting youngsters to learn 'monkey see, monkey do' tricks.

    Not a direct spam; I have checked some blocks of the poorly written text in various forms for matches. The member is well posted on the net and has a number of outlets. It is emplaced advertising, every mention of the word dissertation was linked to the poster's website.
    I thought I would leave the thread here, as being representative of how not to write in English.
