    What to do when my research findings do not match up with the literature review? 

    My thesis is due next month, and I have been stuck here with my thesis! The findings of my research are totally different what I expected them to be. My literature review and the objectives of the study were aimed to study something else, but now I realize that it wasn’t what I expected. My research has gone awry! If I promised to study ABC, my data analysis gave me the answer xyz of another question which I didn’t even think about. How can it be completely opposite! I guess the questionnaire is to be blamed for this for I didn’t check its reliability before-hand. What shall I do now? If I change the objectives and literature review of my thesis, won’t my proposal would be questioned which submitted to the committee? I have no idea what to do. In such a short time, I could not re-analyze my data!! No idea guys, please advise!

    How to avoid penalty fee and submit Dissertation on time? 

    Hi all! I am a postgraduate student pursuing my PhD in Financial Forensics and topic of my research is, the financial analysis of audit report obtained from the crime related security research analysis. I am done with my research and data collection, but i am still left with the major part i.e structuring my dissertation into contents, review of literature, discussion, references etc. I have this feeling that i will not be able to complete my dissertation on time. My guide tells me if I don’t submit it on time, i will have to submit a penalty/ late submission fee. I don’t have that much amount of budget. Can anyone please suggest me a way out by which i can surpass this stage? Thank you in advance.

      For avoiding the late submissions, you need to begin with the writing part as early as you can. You can chart out a writing plan like what time suits you best for writing. If you are a morning person, writing one chapter is no big deal for you. Or if writing at home on a desk bores you or gives you stress, you can go outside- may be a park or coffee house wherever you feel comfortable to write. See, your advisor would scare you so because he wants you to complete your dissertation on time. But don’t be stressed for completing it due to deadlines because then you obviously cannot write your dissertation as you should be.
