Hi all! These are really interesting points and views! Thanks for sharing!

I think my only strong feeling is that we should not have a second referendum. If we remain, then remain - and explain why that decision was taken (and whilst at it, also apologise for the first referendum as it was obviously a big mistake). But don't chuck it back to the people and then try and tell them in was their decision. I am certain that many who voted leave first time round - many for whom it was the first time they had ever believed in something enough to vote for it - which is pretty amazing - would not vote again... ever. Because chucking it back like that confirms their beliefs that their voice is disregarded if it doesn't say what the "elites", celebs, etc, want it to. That's my view anyway.

I think I agree with your point pm133 about having a resolution by now if it wasn't for the extremists and their un-compromising-ness on both sides. And definitely nothing like this can even come near those periods in our history.

I'm finding this tough too - I mean... how should I know? :D But if you really are just doing blue skies thinking then I'm going to suggest that you look into an MSc in speech and language therapy or audiology... a complete change... both extremely interesting and lots of jobs out there afterwards!

How exciting! Go for it! My only suggestion is only come to Europe / UK if it's for the cultural experience and not the educational one. I'm going to get shot down for saying this I'm sure... but it's just my opinion.

Thanks for sharing! Your last sentence is scary and yeh, makes sense )-':

I realise this forum isn't about politics, but I hope a few more people share their thoughts too!

If you don't hear back, please just go ahead and do it and submit anyway. It sounds like you are really over thinking and over checking everything (I know what this is like - believe me). But at the end of the day, you need to show confidence about just going ahead and doing these minor things - otherwise you are just going to feel like you can't step a foot anywhere without checking first. Then again, perhaps I will feel like you too when it comes to making corrections and wanting to be certain it gets through! Thing is - they want to pass you - it's minor corrections - you aren't going to be failed on such a small point! Good luck with submitting it! :-)

Thank you! I suppose this is the sort of thing you come to learn/realise with more experience. Phew!

I'm surprised at how infrequently Brexit seems to come up on this forum... yeh I get it, it's old news now and everyone is totally sick of hearing about it. I just thought I'd do my own private (and deeply biased) poll on it though... if anyone is willing to participate... no need to reveal your vote, but: have your views changed at all since the 2016 referendum?

Bored and not wanting to make final changes to thesis before submission,
Tudor

Hi! I'm not yet post viva, but lots of my friends are. I think you might be overthinking / worrying and this is gonna be fine. For peace of mind, can you not just google and find the ref or at least A ref that you can use to substantiate the minor point?

Thread: 1st class, but should I do MRes before PhD?

An MRes is not redundant unless you have already studied or have time to study later or don't need to study any of the modules on it! If you can get funding I'd say go for the MRes - it's really useful. But you could apply for both if you have a 1+3 and a 3 only option... see which one you get offered the funding for, and if both, make decision then. I'm not sure I've ever heard of anyone regretting doing an MRes, but I have heard people wishing that they'd done one.

Best of luck with your decision!

I think it is fine unless the conference has some explicit guidance that prohibits this. I think it happens when people are ill or whatnot and a colleague knows their work well.

I have never seen handouts being used - but again, different field. I attended an interview not long ago that was for something for candidates from different disciplines. And in addition to giving a presentation we were told we could bring handouts if we had complex information that could be more easily conveyed through visual materials. But I assume you use powerpoint slides and can put stuff on there in your talk?

I think to guide me in your situation I would be asking what do others do (ie what is the norm in my field) and also are handouts necessary (or are the majority of people just going to throw them away).

Curious what has prompted your question at this time!

Cheers Rewt... :) I think that two things were going on here... one - it was my first conference presentation and I wasn't sure about how things work... and so two - I freaked out that my results had changed and that I'd shared the slides with my conclusions on them - which were presented in a very convincing way...

But it turns out that as you said, it's just part of the process and OK for things to change. I didn't really know this and I was having some sort of paranoid thing... In reality the results hardly change - and we have decided to stick with doing it the original way as it made sense anyway. Oh my goodness... is this what doing a PhD does to some people :-/ :-o
