My supervisor first student failed😢

They said I need to rewrite my findings and discussion to make my potential contributions to knowledge absolutely clear to the reader. As though rewriting the findings would result in a different contribution . The internal examiner was an issue here and the viva was not really fair but what option do I have other than do the corrections and hope for the best. The months before the submission were very stressful and the viva went exactly how I imagined. A horrible day and I would remember that day as the viva attack day . I never thought that examiners would behave that way amid of pandemic and my supervisor never contacted me except sending one email to threaten me. I really lost confidence in the system and not sure should I appeal, quit or just spend another unfunded year on my boring phd and try to resubmit

R&R and the nasty supervisor is threatening me

Perviously, I wrote that my supervisor first phd student failed her viva and got an Mphil. I submitted six months after him and got Revise and resubmit. Although my supervision was poor but I guess the reason for this is the internal examiner and I tried to change this examiner but my supervisor never listened to me.
After my viva I was at my lowest. I opened my email and went trough my old emails with my supervisor
( in one of the emails ,I was begging my supervisor to change my internal examiner because I was worried about this choice and the reply from my supervisor was ( You are worrying about nothing! ); I replied to this email and said this is the nothing that I was worried about and thanks for destroying me😭
I went through the other emails where the supervisor was for example trying to push me to submit in three years saying I had enough, or comments were the supervisor mentioned I am meticulous.

Anyway, I sent around 7 emails mai
commenting about how I wad misled by him , I did not say anything rude or aggressive.

Then the next day I have realized what I have done was totally immature and I sent my supervisor an apology and asked my supervisor to disregard all my emails

My supervisor replied that this is an online abuse and harassment and that this would be raised to the university

I am not shocked by my supervisor attitude as it is my fault that i did not change supervision from year one.

Now I am worried about my R&r, my nasty supervisor and my whole life and I have already started to see a therapist because I was really at my lowest after the viva.

Question is ; can my supervisor hurt me in anyway??

My supervisor first student failed😢

Reliable proofreader

Can someone recommend a reliable proofreader/ proofreading services
I found plenty of options online but not really sure about their credibility and I need to
Send my whole thesis as a main issue I have is inconsistency in my use of tenses
Also, I have been using the American spelling and just discovered that I have to switch to the
British style because I am obviously studying in a British university. My supervisor has never commented
about my American spelling nor the inconsistency in my tenses because he has never read my work :)
My deadline is within a month, do you think I would be able to find someone whose willing to proofread 85000 words in two weeks.
Any recommendations for reliable proofreaders as I don’t want to risk it and send my whole thesis to just anyone

How important is the internal examiner

Thank you all for your replies, Question now is: how can I find someone to evaluate my work? Would it be wise to write to the head of the department asking her to appoint someone to read my thesis?? Or what exactly should I do,

How important is the internal examiner

I’m someone who has been doing his Phd no guidance what so ever other than some occasional comments about spilling and punctuations.

Recently, my supervisor first phd student failed her Viva and this news has literally wrecked my life.

On top of that my supervisor has just told me that she has spoken to a member of the department to be my internal examiner. I told her that you should have discussed this with me first and that I don’t want this member to be my examiner for two reasons: first she used to work in Oxford and she has very high and rigid standards. She is fair but really really tough and not a nice person in general. I still don’t know who will be my external examiner. But it doesn’t matter as I feel I’m doomed and my supervisor said that the she can’t change her now because she already agreed to be assigned as my internal

My question is how important is the internal ?? What should I do now

My supervisor first student failed😢

I‘m expected to submit my Phd in few months.
I passed my upgrade with criticism about my work and I discussed that with my sup and she refused to admit that there is any flaw with my research design. I considered all the boards comments and changed my design and my sup never comment about that

During my phd I raised my concerns to the uni saying that I am not receiving enough guidance and they said they’d resolve this informally but nothing has changed . I became convinced that there are 2 options either to change supervisor or remain silent
I completed my thesis by myself without any guidance and my supervisor would read occasionally and gave me very positive feedbacks but I can’t believe her

Recently, I learned that my supervisor first phd student failed her Viva R&R. I tried to contact the student but she never replied. So I emailed my supervisor telling her that I am extremely worried and I can not afford to fail.

I told my supervisor that I need someone to revise my work as I am not confident about it and I had my first draft ready by that time and my supervisor sent the draft to her colleague who took a look at my thesis but have not actually read it and her reply was that the thesis looks orginal but the argument is not well articulated and she is not sure how the thesis is different form other works. My supervisor told me that these are very positive comments and all what I need is to make more emphasis. I don’t really see it in a positive way and I feel my thesis is horrible and the aim of my study is not clear

My question is what is the wisest thing to do now: shall I remain silent and submit or shall I raise the issue to the department and demand that someone read my thesis in details and if the suggestion are major I could apply for an extension

Urgent advice needed
