I posted a lot on here during my MA, and during the first couple of years of my PhD, but that's waned a little as my fellow 'one goalers' left the forum.
But I'm here today to say that I have just passed my viva!
I know it has been said time and time again, but I have to say I ENJOYED IT!
My examiners were both more than lovely, they told me at the start that I had passed, that they thoroughly enjoyed reading my thesis and that they just wanted to have a chat about where I could go next with it. I had a couple of tricky questions from my internal about the theory I used, but I was prepared for that as my internal is very big on this particular theory. They also questioned my chosen methodological approach, but again I had answers for that and they agreed.
After 45 minutes (yes, that was how short it was!) they told me that I had passed with minor corrections (equalling 4 typos and sorting an abbreviation)!
So a big thank you to all of the support I received on here, but especially to Sneaks, Batfink and Lindalou who I don't think are around anymore!
I can't quite believe it's over.
Congratulations Dr. Button!! And thanks for sharing this moment with us :-) So good to hear about such positive experiences! :D
A huge congratulations Dr Buttons! Well done-that's fabulous news :)
That's wonderful news! Many congratulations, and best of luck for the future!
Oh my gosh CONGRATULATIONS and thank you for the special mention! Well done Dr Button, enjoy the celebrations! Hoping to join you on the 'other side' soon!
Hello Button, and congratulations! I'm so happy for you.
Sorry I didn't see this thread before, I haven't come back to the Forum much since starting full-time work.
I mainly came back to report that I too just passed my viva :-) Had it on Friday, passed with very minor corrections. Absolutely over the moon! And it wasn't that scary an experience, and yes, kind of enjoyable too.
Look at us, all doctors and everything!
This forum got me through so much of it!
