When your get marked coursework back at university, you will be given feedback which will tell you about how well you have structured your work and used sources of information.

One problem at university is understanding what this feedback actually means. Your lecturer might say your work is good but it lacks structure, or the structure is weak. Working out what they mean by this is very important.

In the next step Bob is concerned about feedback he has been given and seeks help from his advisor. The problems Bob has are frequently encountered with first year students. Watch the video and think about what you would do in Bob’s place.
