I think I am unlucky one among all of you. I had minor corrections on a resubmitted thesis. I asked internal to see my corrections within 2 months but he refused and asked me to submit fully. My internal didnt not agree with the minor corrections and downgraded me to MPhil. Now I am in appeal process. Any one aware with the rules how these corrections needs to be checked. Is is like if internal is not happy he can ask you to redo the remaing few?? what id he is not happy??? Pl share ur experience with me.
Thanks for your responses. ALthough my university examination format doesnt say any thing like this. The options are 1. Award PhD Strainght pass 2. Minor corrections 3 months 3. Major corrections (18 months with oral examination at the discretion of examiners) 4. Major corrections with oral examination on same thesis 5. award of Mhil 6. Award of Mphil with minor corrections 7. re entre for Mphil within 12 months with new oral exam.
I was given 3 rd option in first attempt and 2 option in second v.v. I am surprised how they have made their mind from 2nd option to Mphil. Any one had expereince of good acedemic appeal lawyers

I think I am in same situation as you. I had two vv (major and minor corrections) but after submitting minor corrections examiners offered Mphil. I am currently thinking of going for appeal. If you currently active on this group I would really appreciate to get some suggestions from you or get in touch with u. Really waiting waiting for your reply.
I would appreciate your response and help on the following matter.
1. I was given major correction in 2008.
2. I appeared in v.v again in 2011 and was given minor corrections of three months
3. After submitting minor corrections I have been told that I am given Mphil
During this whole process my supervisor has been continuous touch with me and checked all my thesis and all corrections and he was more than happy that my work and highly appreciated (during the first four years my all reports are given very good by first and second supervisor, apart from this i have published my work in prestigious transport conferences including one journal) . My internal examiner had problems with my work from start. All the joint reports are actually 99% from internal while external examiner contributed very less in his reports ( i guess he followed internal).
I have been told that I can do grievance appeal. It seems that I have to go with the option of prejudice and bias of examiners towards my work. If any body has experienced this or have any knowledge could he please share his experience with me either in this forum or privately. I will be really grateful for this support.
