During the fifth touch-and-go landing of a period of solo circuits the student pilot applied right rudder in anticipation of the expected swing as take-off power was applied. The aircraft immediately swung to the right and the student, becoming confused, applied further right rudder pressure. The aircraft left the runway and impacted a ditch outside the flight strip. The pilot was not using the sash component of his seat belt and he suffered a facial laceration when he struck the instrument panel during the impact.
