Hi guys, I am in my first year - second semester. I have been doing a lot of reading around my area (big data visualisation) however, I slowly came to realise at the near end of semster 1 that no coherent ideas are forming. Depsite all my tries and reading.
So I played this smartly, I started looking at a different branch (big data security). I found great ideas are forming, objectives etc. And I found a coherent gap.
Is this type of shift of subtopic, though still under the same branch a good move? Does it show you're learning about the subject area? My supervisor is ill and I haven't been in contact with for a while. Hoping next week. He is however interested in both visualisation and security.
I found myself in a endless loop with visualisation.

Hi guys,

So I am an undergraduate student. Just finished my degree and graduated with a second class, being one mark of the first class. A couple of months ago, before I graduate I was offered a phd by my professor, many discussions took place. I also wrote my proposal.

Any who, I sent off my applicaton on the 11th of June and I believe my professor received my applicaton on the 12th of June. But I still haven't heard a reply. He is the head of our entire department. I did send him an email of when would I be expecting a reply, but he still didn't answer. I do realise people like that are the head of department are always busy. But does this sound like I will be rejected? I really do want this chance. Usually, how long do they usually take?

Can someone help please? Anyone had similar experience? I am really desperate for any answer.

Also, our agreement was that I get a first class, however, I received a second class one mark of the first class. Does this matter do you think? Because I felt like that he put this out to ensure I study hard

Thank you
