Just back from the uni. My viva was at 2pm, and I was told at the start that I'd passed. So we then had a very nice chat for about an hour about my research. Then we discussed the corrections, which are very minor typographical ones, and I'm allowed a month to do them. I expect to do them very quickly. Then we discussed publication ideas.
So very very relieved. I started a full-time computer science PhD in 1994, and had to leave that after falling long-term ill with a progressive neurological illness. I never planned to start another PhD, but have now completed a part-time history PhD. Very very chuffed.
Thanks everyone for all your support.
Congratulations Dr Bilbo! thats fantastic, well done! go out and celebrate and then relax and enjoy your success! :) AL x
CONGRATULATIONS, Bilbobaggins - that's drawn a smile to my face, as I try and write up my research. Secretly, I knew you'd pass though. As a fully-fledged doc, I sincerely hope that you continue to post on this forum. You've made some really valuable contributions and I hope you continue to make many more. Well done x:-)
Fantastic new Bilbo!! Hearty congratulations on such a major achievement (up)
Thanks everyone :-) I really appreciate all the kind messages.
I'm going to have a big celebratory nosh up next week, but have a bottle of fizzy (more Moet et Chandon) in the meantime. Oh and one humungous Galaxy Minstrels Easter Egg. Yum!
