Either the OP is a troll, placing mistakes that would be obvious to anyone with at least a college level education, and just screwing with everyone stupid enough to take them seriously...

OR

I feel very VERY embarrassed for him/her


+1 for being more perceptive - but which is the real one YARRRR!!

disertation = 120 pages long thesis that is submitted for the master's diploma exam.

non-related: way to go self centered people thinking that the only places someone can get proper ed is USA or UK.

Oh dear.

Does anyone else here, think there is something fundamentally wrong with an education system, that hands out A's to someone who cannot spell for toffee?


Reading your post made me think of this line from the comedy Red Dwarf:

"After intensive investigation (comma) of the markings on the alien pod (comma) it has become clear (comma) to me (comma) that we are dealing (comma) with a species of awesome intellect (colon)."
"Good. Perhaps they might be able to give you a hand with your punctuation."

I'm guessing its British and doesn't know that to the greater world a dissertation is something one works on for years to earn a PhD, not some half-assed term paper during undergrad studies.


In the UK final year undergrads typically write a dissertation (c. 10k words in my last department) but the term is also used for MA, MPhil and Ph.D. research papers (although the doctorate is more commonly referred to as your 'thesis', at least in the humanities). The common point is that they are all pieces of original research rather than normal essays or papers. Despite the technical use of the term in the states the origin of the word makes it suitable for the broader application common in the UK and there seems to be no reason other than custom for connecting it solely to the doctorate in the US.

Edit - However, I doubt the OP is British as UK universities don't typically use the alphabetical grade system, preferring to use a bizarre percentage system where the top mark is in the 70-80% range (a 'first class' mark) and the 80-100 range is almost never used. Equally a fail is anything below 40% so really there are only 40-50 percentage points in play.

You don't know by now that americans like connecting everything to themselves? Also they spend way too much money on air conditioning the army, news say!

Public Relations requires the clear communication of ideas, you fail at that.



I would say, from experience, that is the last thing which PR requires. Spin and obfuscion is what is needed to protect the corporate suits.
No, no. You're conflating "idea" with "truth".

In Germany we call that a master's thesis (yes, in English). A dissertation is required for Ph.D.

Just FYI since we all seem to use different terms here.

Yeah there seems to be a slight barrier of communication ^^

Why couldn't they just call it Standard-Advanced-Elite certificates rofl.

My M.A. used to be a "Magister Artium", which is Latin. Since that time, we have indeed "Master" and "Diploma", so which of these two are we talking about? BTW: if OP would just name us her country, we could simply lookup wikipedia for the grade system.

magister and diploma have been phased out in favor of the Bologna bachelor/master system.

Heh, so if someone googles for your paper, this page is already the number one hit. I'd suggest editing out your ridiculous comments if you plan on referencing that paper ever.
