What can go wrong?
We have seen more than one master. Failing the thesis is not so different. There are many things that can go wrong when dealing with such a complex academic document. And remember, paper is nothing. Here are some of the reasons why you may fail your thesis:
- You focus on your grades in elementary school. Remember that no one cares about your grades in elementary school. Instead of working on your thesis every chance you get, you worry more about bad grades.
- Please. If you’re like most graduate students, you like to procrastinate. You think you have enough time to research and write your thesis. Well, the sad truth is, you probably don’t.
- You ignore the committee and its recommendations. In most cases, you will be asked to modify certain things during the oral presentation of your thesis. The thesis will surely fail if these changes are not implemented.
- Write at least 4 articles suitable for publication in reputable academic journals. It’s also a surefire way to fail your thesis. Remember that the committee expects to see these exhibits. And they will actually read them. This means that you should never hunt them just for fun.
- It is very dangerous not to have a clear structure in mind. Also, not thinking critically will definitely hurt your score. It is not enough to analyze other works to obtain a sufficient score. You must be able to think critically and come up with original ideas backed by well-researched data. A thesis must present original data that you have revealed yourself.
- If yours has not been edited and corrected, you may fail. The thesis is difficult to read and annoys the commission or at least the chairman of the commission. This is enough to get a low score.
- Waiting for your supervisor to tell you what to do is not an option. You must take responsibility for your article and do the necessary research yourself. You should not expect the supervisor to tell you what to do.
- Your thesis may be considered insufficient. Don’t forget that your thesis must be original and present convincing results.
If reviewers think your article is hopelessly flawed, you will fail.
- The doctorate defense failed. After submitting your thesis to the committee, you will have to defend it. Faculty members will ask you a variety of questions to make sure you understand the field and have really written the paper. If you can’t answer the questions, you won’t fail. It can also be accused of plagiarism, which you don’t want.

11. Exercise, sleep well and eat well. Because our minds and bodies are meant to work together, you’ll likely find that your productivity suffers when you’re not careful about your exercise, sleep, and eating habits. Like it or not, our ability to maintain long periods of sustained concentration, to think carefully about our material, and to find the motivation to complete tasks depends significantly on how well we take care of our bodies. When we neglect to exercise, don’t get enough sleep, or constantly eat an unhealthy diet, it will be harder for us to muster the energy and clarity needed to complete our thesis.
12. Stay focused. Completing a thesis is not so much an intellectual feat as the result of a discipline. If you manage to devote a lot of time to research and writing, make sure you don’t use that time for other activities. This means you have to struggle with multitasking. In fact, studies have shown that multitasking is a cognitive impossibility. Our brain can only focus on one thing at a time. When we think we are multitasking, we “change activities”; instead of multitasking, our brain is constantly switching from one activity to another (listening to a song on the radio, reading a book, resuming the song, etc.). You’ll be surprised how much you can accomplish if you spend 60-90 minutes not paying attention to something. Stick to the task.
