However, all students should have preliminary conversations with their project supervisor before the end of their second academic year, with a view to beginning reading for the project over the long vacation prior to year three.
Students will meet regularly with their supervisor during the first half of their third year to gain advice on what to read and to present sections of the essay for comment.
With regard to going over, please do keep in mind that the 5% is supposed to act as a buffer, not as a kind of ‘bonus’ word limit, so please do still aim for close to 8,000 words, rather than 8,400.

It may consist of an exposition of a novel approach to, or perspective on, a particular area or problem in pure or applied mathematics.
In rarer cases, it may consist of new theorems, conjectures, computations, or applications that were previously unknown.
Some ETDs in this collection are restricted to use by the UNT community.
Independent work by undergraduates in mathematics comes in many varieties.
They are entitled to have up to 2 complete drafts of the project read by the supervisor and to receive oral comments on those drafts.
Students are offered up to 3.5 hours of dissertation supervision. This is up to you as to whether you would like to include this - if you do, I wouldn't expect that you would need to include it in the word count of the work as a whole. Again, this is up to you, but we would have some requests if you decide to get the dissertation bound: You can go anywhere like Kallkwik on Fleet Street to get spiral binding done: You can also go for the most basic ‘binding’ ie a staple, but you need to use a stapler that can cope with the number of pages involved.
