how much does a dissertation count

Hi, I am new here, but I have been reading the forums for a while.
I was just wondering if anyone had any experience of the weight of an undergraduate dissertation in their final degree mark? I’m sure it varies between departments and universities. I am doing my dissertation in History and I am joint honours.

How much does a dissertation count
A dissertation is usually the length of a book, perhaps 100 pages or more. scholarly articles are usually much shorter than that.
Your particular assignment may specifically require scholarly articles rather than scholarly books or book-length writings, perhaps for the reasons above, perhaps for other reasons.

The dissertations are stored on Blackboard and arranged alphabetically by award title.
For example, to access BA (Hons) History dissertations, click on the BA link below, then look for History dissertations in the H-O list. You will be asked to log into Blackboard after making a selection.
