In the Philippines, an academic thesis is named by the degree, such as bachelor/undergraduate thesis or masteral thesis. However, in Philippine English , the term doctorate is typically replaced with doctoral (as in the case of "doctoral dissertation"), though in official documentation the former is still used. The terms thesis and dissertation are commonly used interchangeably in everyday language yet it generally understood that a thesis refers to bachelor/undergraduate and master academic work while a dissertation is named for doctorate work.
A dissertation determines your overall grade and can either help your academic career or break it. It requires investing time, energy, motivation and skills such as research skills in order to do a great job. However, to ensure that your dissertation is not only accepted but also wins you a great grade and high regard, you must present an original dissertation that fulfills the objectives it has indicated. It should be well-researched, coherent and a demonstration of knowledge applied in solving a real life situation effectively. To produce such a dissertation and get high marks for it, you need to know how a dissertation is evaluated so that you can tailor it for a great evaluation. While these evaluations differ among different departments or universities the criteria is pretty much the same and may include the following:
The narrative discussion and bibliography should be uploaded as one document ( 12 pages total ) within the online system. Appendices (charts, graphs, tables, questionnaires, etc.) may be included as technical and supplemental and do not count towards the limit ; however, please be judicious in the quantity included, as reviewers are not required to review material in the appendices. Information essential to understanding the project should be included in the 10 page narrative (including any coding systems). Applicants should make the case for their research in the narrative.
