comment Academic Research
@Alexandros: A PhD student should not be expected to do independent research at the start of a PhD program, surely.

comment Is it possible to show proficiency and earn a university degree in mathematics by sitting exams?
There's more to university that becoming qualified at something. There are other great minds to interact with. If you are as advanced/good as you say you are, then many professors would love to give you additional activities to help further advance yourself, some of these may even involve research. There is no shortage of mathematics to do, and it is best enjoyed with other people.

comment Is it fine to make a poster on a topic in which I have an article under review?
If you were a publisher and you posted it the web pages for an electronic journal that you happen to have, then it would be considered as published.

comment Is it good to only read the high-rated journals as a starting PhD student?
Conference papers contain more cutting edge material than journals in Computer Science.

@Ooker: No. (Presumably, you are not an academic publisher.)

The poster? Putting it on your website is not publishing it.

comment Start the PhD research before taking my masters?
What don't you do the research you want to do for your masters project, then continue when doing your PhD?

comment How to transition into computer science
This is not so much about transitioning into computer science, but into software development/programming. Plenty of programming courses are available at different levels. When applying for a job, typically the employer is interested in your programming background (what you claim to know, what you can demonstrate you know, and your experience). So expand your programming knowledge and practice programming, too.

comment How to use contacts on an application in an unassuming way?
@Stephanie: In spite of that, I found the question hard to read. And given that the advisor presumably has a gender, I don't see why "they" is used.

comment How to use contacts on an application in an unassuming way?
Too many "they" and "their" to understand exactly what you are saying, especially as you mention "advisor" as a singular (hence not "they").

comment Can I patent a model that I described in a paper or that I adapted from a model proposed by someone else? Is a patent more prestigious than a paper?
If you want to study a PhD abroad, then publications are more important. Writing patents that essentially steal someone else's idea is pretty dubious.
