A few months back, I received major corrections. Since then I have been working my backside off to do them. Fortunately, I had a lot of free time and managed to get them done. I will be submitting it soon after (supervisor approval) alongside a feedback sheet (the thesis is highlighted where I put the amendments).
How strict are the examiners when they check amendments?
I can imagine they forget, right?
I have done my viva a week ago and got a pass with a major (or they call it referral with major amendments). Not what I expected.
Based on the viva, it seems they didn't like the structure of the thesis, and the introduction is messy with not good wording about the goal of the research, and duplicating phrases of references. The good news is there isn't work in the sense of more data analysis and experiments (they loved it).
I've not got my feedback form and I'm not sure what to expect. What is the typical work given with this outcome?
I'm in the position that I have a unique upcoming opportunity that I like to pursue. Currently, I'm in my 3rd year (first 2 months), I have written up my thesis and it has got given feedback from my supervisors. The thing is I want to finish the PhD (ASAP) before I start the next stage. Do you think it's wise to do so? Have you heard any stories?
I don't have an interest going in into academia as a career.
I'm in the Computer Science niche (if that helps)?
I'm on funded PhD with monthly installments, these installments are pre-scheduled every January. I'm in my 3rd year and planning to submit in the next two months. My viva will be probably next 3 months. Assuming everything is finished 3 before the actual last date, do I still get those funding in the remaining months?
The funding is a sponsorship from the university.
Has anyone experienced this?
I'm a bit confused about the thesis requirements. Generally, I see 80,000 but a lot of them claim to for Humanities but STEM course to roughly around 35,000 - 45,000 words?
Is there anyone here who submitted a thesis with this word limit?
I'm doing a Computer Science PhD, my thesis is roughly 43,000 words and 135 pages.
Wow, a 400-page thesis? I understand the feeling you're going through. Since you nearly to the end, it's best to repair the corrections as soon as possible. I'm not surprised you're burnt out after a 400 page.
Congratulations on succeeding in your PhD. I do sometimes think if I made the right decision for PhD.
Take a day off and then starting going through the errors.
I also agree with your statement about marking. It's defintely subjective based on staff. It's quite rare to have a good set of staff for a research project.
