any chance anyone could take a look over my dissertation?

I know this is a massive long shot. I handed my dissertation in last week (I'm 24, first DC expected in November, unplanned but been with DP for 7 years and he's got 2 years of his med degree left so am very happy) but luckily it hasn't interfered with my degree.

My supervisor was useless. She didn't even look over my draft until 2 days before the final deadline despite having sent it to her 3 weeks before. I managed to get a 1 week extension because of this but even in that week she was very unhelpful. She emailed me back corrections but honestly it was 4 or 5 really brief points, mainly wording, reference corrections. It took me less than 15 minutes to go through them and make the adjustments. Most people I know said they spent hours after they got their draft back making the corrections.

I know it's all done and dusted now and there is nothing I can do with it but I would just like at least a rough idea of what kind of grade it is. I have no idea if its a 50, 60, or possibly higher! (doubt it very much.)

I feel so let down by her. She has a lot of Msc and phd students and it was obvious I was just a nuisance but she really was the only expert in this field in my department so I didn't want to switch to someone else. Like I say I know it's a long shot and it's not like a dissertation is something that can quickly be read over but I'd love to know just vaguely what kind of grade it could be

Don't beat yourself up about it if it's already submitted!

Put it behind you and just leave it to the markers...

Good luck.

I don't think that I can help but it would be useful to have the subject its in if you want help.

Don't upload it to a public forum.

What subject is it?

I wouldn't circulate your dissertation until it's come back marked, not to strangers on the internet anyway.
Just put it to one side now, it's handed in and you can't change anything now so you may as well try not to worry about it.
Maybe it came back with few corrections / suggestions because it was good anyway and did not need much tweaking.
