Worcester College of Technology
Working with Worcester Warriors
How I got Worcester Warriors players to help me with final scientific dissertation.
I needed to find a way to get the best marks on a dissertation as I had not got the best grades in the previous modules due to being new to learning. I wasn’t taught how to write the perfect essay or answer questions the way the tutors wanted.
Some of the other college kids trained with the Worcester Warriors team. I needed some great athletes to work with who would provide really good results.
To get the Worcester players on board I would need to build a relationship with them first. Rather than just go in guns blazing. I also needed to make sure I wouldn’t cause injury and that everything was prepared correctly to save time.
I got in touch with one of the main players who was also a coach for the college rugby team.
I then attended rugby sessions every week.
I slowly got to know the coach and then dropped my question to see if the other players were interested.
The other players agreed to do it. So it was just a case of setting up a time and date. I also sent a schedule of the tests I wanted to be carried out to the main coach, to make sure it wouldn’t interfere with their other training. The test was completed and my tutor was impressed I used my initiative to get hold of the main rugby team in Worcester and one of the best in the UK.
This dissertation brought my grades up dramatically.
I got the grades I needed to move into university.
The coach for the team also adapted their training of the players based on the tests results I found and the research I had conducted.
I didn’t really try to get 100% full marks in every subject, in every test and essay in college. I did the bare minimum.
Looking back I would ask for every little bit of help I could. Try to obtain example essays. So I knew what to do, before even doing it.
I would also ask what the highest scores in the country were and what marks the top universities look for.
Instead of just doing enough to stay in a rubbish local university.
College was fun, but I wasted so much potential and time.
