You may remember last year that my PhD was awarded an MPhil .. well, without going through the whole story which is too negative for now, the examiner's decision was nullified pretty soon after I received the outcome .. to which end, I received a new viva with new examiners and it passed like a dream ! The examiners were very positive about the thesis and recommended book publication, and it was a very supportive and thought-provoking discussion. I received only very minor editorial corrections. Now looking back, I can see how much strength and determination the whole process took let alone the writing of the thesis. But now I can move on, and career is going well. My advice is keep focussed, and there are some bad players in academia, but if you keep your conscience clean, a victory is certainly possible and well-deserved. Thank you for all of your support during such a horrendous time. I never thought such a great outcome was possible! Good luck!
Well done !!! You are clearly a resilient and determined individual.It is awful to think that someone else might have given up and walked away- forever believing their work was not worthy of a PhD because of one examiners unfair judgement. You have held firm proven the value of your work. I would imagine the whole process was a nightmare but worth it in the end. Go you. Congratulations x
Well done and congratulations. It is so good to read these sorts of stories. You must be so relieved and proud of yourself! Tremendous stuff coming through this sort of process...
