Hi Charisma,

I am in a very similar situation as you. I submitted my major corrections one and half months back and my internal examiner approved the corrections within a month. However, there is still no update from the external examiner after repeated emails to the external from my supervisor and the internal examiner. Deadline for July graduation at my uni is 25th June and in the PhD guideline of my uni, the maximum time the examiners can take for a major correction is two months (which is 27th of June). This week my internal emailed the graduate school stating the situation (I need my degree certificate to start my postdoc) and asked to contact the external. Graduate school emailed the external but still no response yet. I am thinking of writing to the graduate school about what happens when the two months deadline passes as I am not sure why the external is taking so long! I don't think this comment would help you much but I think only way is to request your supervisor to chase your examiners and explaining the situation. All the best and I will update as soon as I get to know something.

Thanks a lot for the suggestions. I still have not heard from them. Everytime I contact my internal and my supervisor, they said they are in touch with the external and nothing after that. Yes, I dont want to miss this July graduation and I am afraid thay only few days left now for the deadline. My expected employer can not hire me without the certificate as I am an international candidate. So, I guess I have no other option except the wait.

Hi,

I had my viva in November and following the viva I was given major corrections. However, it was mainly the decision of my internal examiner (who was supposed to support me) and the external examiner agreed to that. It took sometime for me to digest this result as my thesis was corrected several times by my supervisor and no one expected that. I made the changes in 3 months and submitted the corrections. During the viva both of the examiners knew about my postdoctoral job offer which I could not join due to the delay. Now, I got another postdoc offer and they also need the certificate for me to start. I have told this to my supervisor and the internal examiner. Internal examiner has read my changes and waiting for the external examiner to respond. External examiner is a very laid back person and despite the internal examiner emailing several times, still there is no reply. So, I am just wondering is it okay if I email directly to the external stating my situation. Is this an option or I should just wait and may lose this job as well.
