I had my viva on the 18/12/2014 and passed. Prior to that (2 years ago) I had a viva with major corrections and was offered a Masters by Research. I was devastated and really depressed and felt like a failure. But I addressed each comment religiously and did more of what was originally asked of me. It paid off. So please, please keep your chin up and you can private message me and I will be glad to help as much as possible.
I only had my viva on the 18/10/12. I also have
To revise and resubmit. I have never
Felt so down that day. Still feel shaky about
It all and my confidence has taken a shaking too. Howver
There are many people on this site that have helped
Me to look to the future. Listen to what they advise
I'm not. Just take s break get you report
And start chipping away little bit by little bit. Just
Remember I and many others were all doing
The same just now. Hang in there please. I also
Felt that I let my kids down, another reason
To keep going. Big hugsx
Thanks for the advice you gave me. I will do what you suggest. So glad I came on this forum. I'll just wait
for the comments and I will address them one by one. I'll keep my external involved if I can. I really appreciate
Your comments thanks. So appreciate that you took the
time to write all this really helpful stuff, thanksx:-)
Thanks I needed that. I am feeling less tired
And exhausted. Everything you say is correct.
I am now looking toward the future. I think
It was the shock, the viva went well, so it completely
Took me by surprise.
Where are you up to in your phd thesis?
My supervisor has said that the examiners do think
It will pass with ammendments.
Thanks again Hedy you really helpedx(up)
I sat my viva yesterday. The viva was really great, the examiners were great. I thought if was
Going really well. I returned back into the examination room and sat down. I was
Then told of my offers. 1.my phd would be a MPhil
Or 2. A resubmit snd new viva within 2 years. I was totally
Shocked. I said that I would resubmit corrections within 6 months. I had a mock
and none if these corrections emerged. Generally I think
They want me to bring it up to date more. While
I accept all comments as being valid, I feel numb.
I didn't get a fail that's positive and I get to resubmit
again. Just feeling inadequate, embarrassed and silly really.
I am determined to fix my thesis once I get the comments, just a bit sadx:-(
