Schools Mental Health Week 2019 Creative Writing Competition

This annual Creative Writing Competition for Victorian schools, organised by Australian Mental Health Problems, is again being held in the lead up to Mental Health Week 5 - 11th October 2019.

How to write a research paper in 8 hours and preserve mental health?

If there are only 8 hours left and you have not even planned what you will write in your research paper presentation, it is important not to worry, as you still have a chance to do the work with much success. Here is what you should do.

Turn off your smartphone and forget about social media

First and foremost, if you have been asked to make a research paper presentation within only a few hours, you need to refrain from looking for any updates on social media platforms as this will greatly disturb the writing process. If you feel like you are too addicted to social networks, we recommend you to ask a friend to keep your smartphone away from you for a while.

Organize your work and set an achievable goal

Writing a research paper presentation requires not only gathering the relevant information, but also creating the suitable design. For this reason, during the planning process, you need to set your goals to future work and divide the writing process into several stages. For example, the primary stage will include gathering the materials and taking notes of what you will write in your presentation. At the same time, the next stage of work will involve the choice of suitable design and creation of each slide one by one.

Edit your work and watch out for mistakes

The last step of the writing process is editing and proofreading your work. This step is as important as the writing process itself because it will guarantee that your work is absolutely error-free to create the right impression on your teacher. Don’t underestimate this step and don’t ignore it, even if there is little time left till the deadline.

Still, if you feel that making a research paper presentation is above your abilities, you can always order it on our website. We promise to deliver it right on time to ensure timely submission.

If you stuck with your paper and need some professional help you can pay for your research paper here.
