Guys,

I am bringing my feedback so that we all learn from something. As i reported earlier...my supervisor commented on my draft " your literature review is not up to PhD level". For the first time i thought i am stupid and i should quit ( in my first year), though to quit was not my options but i was thinking that i cannot get it right. Thank you all for your advise. My second draft has no major corrections to make, just to add some figure, tables, expand discussion etc. The lesson learnt is " whatever any language your professor write or comment on your paper/thesis draft, take it easy. Relax, ask friends/colleague, seek advise from your supervisor etc................ you will one day get it right. I am expecting to commence my second chapter, i hope this time i will improve my draft. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR ADVISE

I am sure after all, @ pm133 you are enjoying what you do, and this is what everyone should aim too!

If happened that i got through this PhD journey ( may be 3-5yrs to come), my focus is to do my own things and enjoy the rest of my life !

All is well. I had a skype conference with my supervisor. He main concern was level of discussion i provided. Hence, more literature review and engagement on discussion is the area that i need to improve on various sections. For example, his views is that giving only one definition in a certain concept is not enough, at least citing 4-5 various scholars' definitions is a good start.

For those who are still at early stages of writing literature review try to cite as many as possible articles, journal, books etc. Don't go with only one cited concept, explore what others have researched or said on the same concept.

I hope i will do better when i submit my second draft to my supervisor.

I don't think working full-time and going on with your PhD is the problem? Yes, it should give you a stress but not that you cannot do it! You are not a first PhD student to do that. I believe there hundreds PhD students that are also full-time employees! Above all, i am among of them. I will full-time job (and very demanding), i am the father of two sons ( very troublesome kids) , i have my own consulting firm....and also a part-time PhD student! What i believe is that, we need to be committed, focused and determined on whatever plans we institute in our academic journey. For me, i spent at least 3 hrs a day....meaning no reading emails, blogs or youtube etc..just focus on my thesis writing! Everyone has his/her own experience, but am optimistic that we can handle this until all is well.....

@chantedsnicker....that was a best comfort words i have not read for decades. Brilliant advise for sure. I am almost going through of what Alpha-Jay explain. I am in my first year, and i got a feedback from supervisor after submitting my first draft of literature review. His comments was " your draft is not yet in PhD level". I felt like may be this is not my place..... I am a parent, full-time employed etc....but what i came to realize is that quiting is not a solution! Each day build confidence and determination that, I CAN, I CAN DO IT.

@TreeofLife, thank you for your comments. The issue is not writing skills. My supervisor's comments is based on the level of discussion for the first draft i submitted. He said my first draft is not yet on PhD level, meaning that, my literature review discussion is not "matured enough" if i can so! Anyway, tomorrow i will be having a skype conference call with him for more advise and guidance.

Dear team,

I am currently in my first year (PhD) student. We have agreed with my supervisor that this year literature review (which will have 3 chapters/sections) should all be done and completed this year. I have tried my level best and already submitted one draft for chapter 2, however, the feedback from my supervisor is that " Your work is not yet on PhD level" I feel like i did my best for my first draft. Any idea or guidance? I feel like the difficultness of PhD has now commenced! :)
