Thread: What if your PhD major corrections are not accepted?

Hello everyone,
I have been reading some of the threads here from people ho have done their PhD Viva and received major corrections. I passed my Viva in January with major corrections. I submitted these corrections last week after checking with my supervisor that I have addressed every single point I was asked to review. However, even though I submitted these over a week ago, I have not had a response. 13 June is the deadline at my University for July graduation and I am in that state of anxiety thinking of all sorts of scenarios where the examiners may say that I have not fulfilled their expectations with the corrections I have made.
I have worked on my PhD part-time for 6 years and have funded it personally. I gave up work to focus on it more in the last few years. The prospect of having 6 years of my work and financial investment judged by two people who are not even subject specialists in my field of expertise is daunting .
I am anxious about two things:
1. I might not meet the 13 June deadline.
2. Worst case scenario, the examiners may find fault with my corrections and we are only allowed one attempt at corrections.

What would be my options if the examiners do not accept my corrections?
Those of you who have been in this state of anxiety after submitting your major corrections, what advise do you have for those of us who are in this limbo state?

Kind regards
