It's unlikely that the examiners will change their mind and fail you after you make the necessary revision. If they are not satisfied with the revision, they will just ask for further amendments and clarification.

Quote From drkl:
I tend to agree with awosci. I have seen young scholars (usually fresh PhD graduates) being unduly harsh on students, partly because they were too eager to show how critical they can be and partly due to their lack of experience in examining theses.



That's strange, in my field fresh PhD graduates would never be allowed to act as an external. You have to be at the level of at least senior lecturer.

I guess it's different for different fields.




I meant acting as an internal examiner.

Yes - typically if you address all the reviewers' comments, your paper will be accepted. There are always exceptions, though.

What are the reasons for the failure in your third attempt? And what are the implications for failing the assessment? I think we need more details to be able to offer any advice.

I don't think you need to worry too much. The examiners should already have made the decision about the outcome immediately after the viva (e.g. pass with minor corrections). And your job is to revise the thesis to the satisfaction of the examiners. So if they are not entirely satisfied with the revision, they will ask for further changes. It's unlikely that they would go back and change the outcome.

This is not at all unusual. Most of my chapters went through at least 5 rounds of revision. A suggestion to you - you should have a system to keep those deleted parts because a few years later you might find some of them useful!

I still don't understand why you cried while you should have been celebrating. I also got given 6 months to make some minor amendments but did it in less than 3 weeks.

Congratulations. I was also given 6 months to do what is called "minor amendments" (so it was still a pass) and I finished the correction in less than 3 weeks!

So just get on with doing the correction!

Don't be silly. You know that there is no such a thing of topping up your degree classification.
