There's not really anything specific I have to say other than my deadline for my corrections is Friday and I am absolutely biffing out about it. I still have so much to do and I'm working full time and I don't know how I'm going to get it done (Somehow I will but I don't know how).
My supervisor hasn't looked at hardly any of my chapters or amendments and what she has looked at she's pulled it apart for misuse of f**king possessive apostophes!! So that's adding to my stress that I've got roughly half of my thesis that she hasn't looked at.
How often to people get referred for an MPhil or fail following major corrections? That's my worry that after all this stress and heartache that it will still end up not passing.
Hi. I think taking the rest of this week as vacation is not a bad idea. Do what you can. I do not have statistics but if you have done the main part of the corrections, it is more likely you will pass with minor corrections. They tend not to downgrade or fail someone if there is a chance he/she produce a coherent thesis. Another round of minor correction is what you should expect and I think it is not a bad outcome.
Dr Crabby, if your report is due on Friday then you can't afford to waste time fretting over anything you can't control. Somehow you need to focus on the report. Personally, I would have taken holiday time off work to get this done. It's not too late for that.
Worrying about anything else right now jeopardises your chances of finishing on time.
