I've waited so many years to do this post... I've just passed my viva :-) I have minor amendments to do - I've been given 4 months to do them in as I'm working f/t within the dept and teaching starts next week, but in reality they won't take anything like that - they really are very minor - just presentation issues really and putting into the appendices tables and spreadsheets that I already have (but didn't include! duh)
I'll post a full viva story tomorrow when I'm feeling more with it in the hope it will help some of you and will put minds at ease. All I can say is that it was a totally positive experience - I was terrified, so stressed, so tearful, but once I got in there it was great and I really did actually enjoy it!
I want to say thanks to all the people on here who've advised me, helped me, shared their experiences, and gone through this journey with me over the last 4 years - its made the whole 'PhD thing' so much better and more fun than it might have been. You're all stars and I just wish I knew who you really are so that I could give you a big hug of thanks :-)
That's fabulous news - well done and congratulations Dr. Stressed! I've been following your posts and I am so pleased for you. Hope you have fun celebrating tonight (hopefully with champagne!) and I look forward to reading your viva story.
Enjoy the post-viva glow, I've heard it's wonderful! :-)
