Thanks for your reply. Luckily our University allows candidates to resubmit changes if examiners are not satisfied. Therefore it will not be a simple choice of pass or fail. I am quite worried that my corrections were not in line with the examiners’ expectation, because some of the comments in the examiners’ report were vague. I asked the examiners to clarify a bit, but they used the ambiguous phrases such as “ I am just curious” and “you can address it later.”
I survived my 5 hour PhD viva (a nightmare) last November. I almost thought I would fail, but luckily the outcome was "pass with minor corrections." Then I received the joint report from the examiners. Some of the comments were vague and unhelpful. I worked with my supervisor to create a list of corrections and revised the thesis accordingly. I have not heard anything from the examiners after I submitted the corrected thesis. I sent them a follow-up email today, and they told me they did not have time to read the thesis yet. They also told me if they were not satisfied with my corrections, they would fail me outright.
I already emailed the PhD committee for clarification. I am quite anxious now. Does anyone encounter the similar scenario?
