But the other thing that amuses me this time of the year is schadenfreude. For undergaduates up and down the country, it's dissertation time. It's typically 8,000-12,000 words of hell. Few undergraduates really know how to construct a logical argument. Many think they do.
Courtesy of a guest post written for L K Jay this time in 2012, I'm going to do undergrads up and down the country a favour by highlighting the common pitfalls that take a 1st class essay down to a 2:1 (or, a 2:1 down to a 2:2).
