Hello fellow Postgrads!, I am a first year PhD student into my study 7 months already. I had a milestone "deal-breaker" assessment due 3 months into my research. That assessment is usually relatively easy to pass and its just an expanded version of your proposal with which you applied. However, my supervisor changed my topic and asked me to rewrite a proposal, which I did he was never satisfied with it and kept making me re write it until time for the deadline was close. I submitted it like that and I failed but was given corrections and a second chance, he changed the topic again, and made me redo the whole thing from scratch. Which I managed to do, however he said he doesn't like the structure and made me redo the hole thing again and added more research areas to it. Basically I have one week to do the work of 3 months in a felid which is way far from where I started. Is this normal supervisor behaviour? I honestly feel like quitting. I feel my supervisor is making experiment on me if I am able to do quality work in minimal time frame, but this is unfair because my admission is at stake, and my mental health. Does anyone else experience this?'
