A Very Sad Story

Ann is a student in the Department of English Literature. She had to choose a topic for her seminar paper and decided to focus on books by Charles Dickens. She had not studied any courses on Dickens and was familiar with only a few of his novels. She went to the library to read some articles on Dickens but she couldn’t decide which articles were important to read. Because she had a deadline to meet, she sometimes stayed up all night to work on her paper. In the end, she met her deadline, but her final mark was only 70.
