That's a lot of work for nothing :( you'd think after three months your "supervisor" would have noticed what your thesis was about before this.
Three months is actually probably not the longer time to have been working on a project in some subjects, I'd say the other person probably had been working on it longer. It's really not okay for the supervisor to have given OP the project work while someone else was already working on it since this was likely to happen in the long run. I'm sorry OP, FYL indeed.
hey! it's not a problem to have the same topic, but doing a (too similar) research is not accepted. Even when you're not aware of it. By the way, thank you all for the kind responses! I was really in a bad place after getting the news that my research was being invalidated, now I'm almost done!
Op here, it turned out that this other guy was working on it before me (under the same supervisor..) so he rightfully published it. in the end I kind of resumed his thesis and continued best I could. It sucked, but I really want to graduate!
