no I'm not........I'm working as a research assistant for a year and then probaby doing one afterwards. I didn't look at PhD's in time to get my pick of them for this autumn and thought I'd wait and see the ones that came up for autu,mn 2007 and choose one i was really interested in rather than what was left this july
good point. there's no way I would be self funded. My sister's ex boyfriend was and always had no money.
Does anyone know of anyone who failed opr got kicked off their PhD? How bad does one have to be? I'm not thinking that I'm this bad, it's just out of interest really
erm about the grade, it doesn't really work like that, by the time you get to viva it could be: pass, pass with minor correction (3 months), pass with major corrections (18 months)(please no!), MPhil (examiners decide no chance your work can get to PhD level) or fail.
Thanks for starting this thread, I'm also worried about failing before I've even started, so you are not alone! By the way, does anyone know what sort of things count as minor or major corrections? I suppose there's no chance it could be spelling mistakes...
DanB, since you seem like a pretty good critic of your work and mistakes you make, wouldn't it be a sensible thing (or maybe to save your a**)to go over your jumpy report and sloppy graphs in the few days that you have until friday's viva. you know it might be a good idea..while you are hanging around the computer writing critical reviews of your work to this forum
