Thanks for your encouragement Naturalme.
I hope you and Mrs Bilbo Baggins are right. My mistake seems so big and stupid to me though. It's really knocked my confidence....I'm wondering if the examinors really can pass me when I've made this kind of error (an error which led to misinterpretation of results).
I'm trying not to freak out too much....
Thank-you Mr Baggins.
The thing is, it wasn't a typo- just a stupid contradiction. I stated that anything less than 0.1 would be considered significant in my anlaysis. Then in the very next sentence I write that my result of 0.07 wasn't considered significant.
I really feel like I've just been punched hard in the chest. What a stupid, stupid oversight! I'm so terrified my examinors will take one look at that and write me off.
I have my PhD viva in 6 days.
And I've just spotted a BIG error in a chapter of my thesis (I basically contricted myself in the silliest way). I'm horrified that I didn't spot it earlier- it makes me look like a total idiot.
I think the rest of the thesis is okay. Will I fail my viva because of this one mistake?
What should I do?
