Thank you for your reply. The examiner's report has been approved by the Examination Board last June, and I submitted my correction in mid-July. I'm told that once the examiner is satisfied that any corrections have been completed then he will forward it to the Postgraduate Research and Operation. I'm not sure whether it will involve another Exam Board meeting to produce the Senate letter.
I'm already in my home country (9hrs time zone apart) hence calling the examiner would be quite difficult especially he's not always around in the office. I know that two weeks is too short of a time for him to check but at least I need some indication that he has received my corrected thesis.
Hi, I got three months minor correction after viva and submitted my thesis after two months. I emailed the internal examiner the corrected thesis together with the list of the changes more than a week ago but haven't received any indication whether he has received it. I'm quite worry because the last time I contacted him, he only replied after two months because he just found my email. My biggest concern derived from the fact that by 10th Aug my sponsor requested that I send them a PhD certificate or at least a Senate letter otherwise I have to pay back the total amount of the funding because I have extended the agreement period.
So my question is, what can I expect from the examiner - how long does it usually take for them to check and inform me of any progress? After they have agreed with all the changes, how long does it usually take to receive the Senate letter? Is there anyone else that I can communicate with to ask about it? I am an international student studying in the UK.
Edit 1: On Monday I emailed the examiner just to ask if he has received my corrected thesis, I'm still waiting for a reply.
Edit 2: I did ask the sponsor to consider extending the dateline and they are still considering.
Hello, I have just passed my viva (phew!) but I'm stuck with one editorial work. I am working with a lot of dummy variables, and in a few models I included about 40 dummies. Each table itself span on four pages with the coefficient and standard error for each explanatory variable. I have been advised by the examiners to shorten the table, but I don't think I can omit any of the variables because I discuss all of them in the text. Is it possible to report the table without standard error under the coefficient? (I have tried this and now the table takes up 2 pages instead of 4). I have emailed the examiner 2 weeks ago but I don't receive any reply. I'm not sure what to do with the tables. Thanks!
