Title: PhD: Causes of Anxiety

PhDCause for Anxiety
Choosing the topic
  • At the mention of a PhD dissertation, people
    start losing sleep, they start wondering how they
    may be able to get around selecting the topic and
    convincing the evaluator to choose the topic.

Creating the proposal
  • Making the introductory abstract or proposal
    writing for the dissertation is another factor
    that gives the jitters to PhD students. The
    reason for this is that the proposal needs to be
    the entire dissertation written in short and that
    would imply that the PhD students should know
    exactly what they are going to showcase in their

Working on the structure
  • The rules and regulations that are set or
    prescribed by the universities is a major reason
    for anxiety among PhD students. With the rules
    for structure of chapters and the flow of written
    material, one tends to get overwhelmed.

The write up
  • More than anything else, the write up itself is
    something that becomes a cause for worry for the
    PhD aspirants. With the stringent check on
    plagiarism, spellings and grammar, it is
    something that one has to pay special attention
    to. Hence dissertation writing itself sometimes
    become a cause of worry.

The research
  • No dissertation is complete without making a
    research and the study requires a series of
    methodologies that help in bringing inferences in
    the study. The thought of having to use the
    methods and the formulae is something that may
    turn into a nightmare for many students.

The presentation
  • When working on the dissertation, one also needs
    to be careful about the right way of presenting
    the project with all the regular and special
    attachments such as the various studies, surveys
    and questionnaires along with the referencing and
    the mention of all the resources that were used
    in the process of making the project. Keeping a
    track of all the details and having to put it on
    paper is a majorly daunting task for those doing
    the dissertation.

Sticking to timelines
  • In the entire process of creating a dissertation,
    there is one constant that keeps adding to the
    anxiety and that is the deadlines and the dates
    for submitting various parts of the project.

The solution
  • The solution is simple, one must opt to approach
    an expert or an experienced person who may be
    able to serve as a mentor or a dissertation tutor
    outside of the university and may be able to
    guide towards achieving the dissertation with
    ease. Someone who has gone through or evaluated
    the PhD dissertation process, may be the ideal
    person to mentor an aspirant.
