    How do I re-formulate my research questions and restructure my thesis? 

    My thesis has become a nightmare that I am living, I cannot even concentrate on anything this thesis sucks all the time of my life. I just want to get done with it my guide keeps rejecting my thesis and I have become fed up with this whole process itself. I cannot understand what should I do to get my thesis approved? Since it is becoming humiliating to have to work on the same thing for so many years now. I am PhD student of Macro Economics, my research topic is smart services/ E-services provided by the government in Dubai. I need help in re-formulating my research questions and restructuring my thesis, these are the two issues that my guide keeps on emphasizing on time and again. It would be a great if any suggestion or proposition can be given that would actually help me come out of this jeopardy.

      PhD thesis is a huge work, everybody struggles to contain the immensity of it, so don’t lose hope. Working on one project for a longer period of time, diminishes your objectivity of the topic, a lot of my friends who are PhD holders, faced similar problems. I would suggest apart from revising and modifying it on your own, you should discuss it with some scholar in the same field or in fact, seek help of a professional from this field. There are a number of online portals and some institutes that have reputed and quality professionals that could help you with your PhD project. I am attaching link to a couple of online portals that provides all sorts of help in the field of PhD and research.

      Hi! The main issue with your research, if I have understand correctly, is in the structure and the research questions? A research ought to reflect a clear idea throughout, if your guide is unsatisfied with the research questions then maybe you need to revisit your research objectives, the ‘why’ portion of your research that you must have encountered in the initial stages of your research. Take your objectives as a yardstick to measure your research, which might as well allow you to identify the specific portions of your research that might not pertain to the research as a whole. Revisiting your objectives will also lay down in front of you an outline or a structure, how the whole thesis should pan out. This exercise would highlight the discrepancies and the portions that require reformulation or restructuring.

    How to write PhD motivational letter for PhD admission? 

    Can you please guide me for writing a commendable phd motivational letter for UK universities? I’m good at writing but barely know what information about my academic background is required. I did a lot of Google search, but there is no to-the-point information available attested by the university. Please advise.

      Speak about your research goals. Mention why you are fit for this PhD candidature. You should mention how your study can make a difference to your area of research or the society on a large basis.

      You letter should not be longer than one page. One thing what the admissions committee is not at all looking forward to is things like “it has been my childhood dream”. Instead of sounding pompous, give them an insight as to why this area of research interests you. Also, don’t give any false information about any of your achievements.

      Well, the purpose of a motivational letter is to help the admission committee to distinguish between outstanding students and excellent students. It is important that you should stress on your intellectual interests for the PhD course and the area of field you plan to study and about your previous research experience. Also, focus on keeping a serious and professional tone but at the same time, be positive and energetic.

      I will focus on the points that you should avoid while preparing a motivational letter. Do not state false facts about your achievements and you should not try to make exaggeration or make use of imperious metaphors. The staff from the admission committee will find out whether a motivation letter is genuine or fake. Do not praise the university too much and also avoid to mention statement like “I have always been fascinated by scientific research”, It was my childhood dream” etc.
