I passed my PhD viva on Friday. Actually, when I sat down with the examiners and the chair, the external told me that I have passed and that now we should imagine that we are in a café talking about the research improvements. After one hour, I was told it was enough. The whole discussion was actually very enjoyable. They asked me to come back after 30 minutes and they said they only wanted more cultural-historical context but that the rest was very good. That I should re-write the intro adding this context. The devolution at the end lasted literally, 5 minutes but, and this is where I need advice: THEY GAVE ME SIX MONTHS!!! Could anyone be able to shed some light one this, because I'm very shocked!
I am two weeks a way of doing my VIVA. I am in an Irish University, my PhD is on Literature. Although the head of the school and my supervisors say I should try to enjoy the opportunity to discuss my research with specialists on the topic, I am really scared and feeling extremely anxious. Can anyone give me some advice on how to deal with this situation? I have been reading about other people having dreadful experiences in their VIVAs. I should not have done that, I guess.
