My corrections were accepted a few weeks ago and I graduate this week! It's been a long 5 years since I started the PhD and I want to say thanks to everyone on the forum, I did a lot of lurking taking in the collective wisdom and have had a lot of advice from folk which I'm very grateful for! :)

I resubmitted a couple of months ago and yesterday found out that my PhD has been accepted subject to a few typos. So I should be graduating in July. Such a relief!

Passed viva on Thursday 11th May 2017 with minor corrections which should only take a day or two to fix. I will probably be a week too late with my final corrected thesis to graduate for the summer but will be happy enough to graduate in November.

For those who are still in the middle of their PhDs I will post elsewhere on my experience of the process and also why I have decided to turn down a postdoc opportunity and quit academia. I found it helpful to read the experience of others so will be happy to return the favour.

Very very happy.

Thanks to both of you.
My minor corrections were completed and submitted last weekend.
I can honestly say that waiting on these corrections being approved is the worst part of my PhD by some distance.
I have heard nothing yet, not even acknowledgement of receipt of the corrected thesis. According to my supervisor the process will take as long as it takes.
Given that I like to be in comtrol, this is absolute torture and it has only been 4 days lol.
Having nightmares about the changes not being accepted.
Would be interesting to see if others experienced delays in getting a response.
I am settled on an expectation of one month now. No idea if that is realistic.

Perhaps my internal examiner reads this forum.
Minor corrections have been approved.
Free to get hard copies printed.
It's all over.
I am way too hard and tough to cry.
So what on EARTH is this....... :-D
