Thanks...I am in New Zealand. The orals haven't been scheduled yet. Unfortunately, the change the internal wants, the removal of the case study, is the crux of the thesis. Removing the case study destroys the thesis. I dont think the internal examiner understands this. Thanks for the advice.

Hello;

I am in a very strange situation. I submitted my PhD and the concensus of the examiners was "the thesis be accepted and the degree be awarded after amendments have been made". The external and International examiners didn't have any comments. The internal had 5 pages of comments...mostly petty and mostly opinion based. One of his demands is the removal of the central case study which is what the thesis is about. Removing the case study would make the thesis unreadable. The exam coordinator is worthless and every time explain the rationale he agrees with me but says that is what the internal examiner wants for the thesis to pass. I am retired and disabled so I have nothing but time. What are my options? I want to withdraw the submission and submit to a different university. I am late 50s and dont see any utility in moving forward to viva given the ongoing issues with the internal examiner. Any thoughts or recommendations on the best way fwd?
