Hi negativepinklady. I know how you felt, I have been in a similar situation before my viva and I found a few mistakes which seemed like the end of the world. I had my viva and it was so much better than I expected. The examiner did notice a few mistakes but I took the corrected pages and they were happy I went through the thesis again and saw it. I know the days leading upto the viva are filled with anxiety but the best advice I can give you are know your subject and question aims and the shortcommings of the thesis and be able to explain them (remember most thesis are not perfect- but they do pass which is the important thing!)Your supervisor would not have let you sumitt if it was not ok aswell. All the best and try not to get too anxious.
Hi everyone. It's great to read all the thesis and viva related posts- I'm learning a lot form people's advice. I am in a bit of a panic at the moment as I have been re-reading my Thesis and spotted an error in one of my figures in the text which is different from the figure in the table. Neither me or my supervisor spotted this and I am worried of what the examiner will think if they see this. Has anyone had this experience pre viva? Can you be failed for it? Your advice would be appreciated.
Hi Scienceurchin I also have my viva early dec and I totally understand how hard it is to look at the thesis after submission. I am feeling like a flat tyre at the moment and have to find a way to get myself in a positive and constructive frame of mind. I am going to write chapter summeries of each section which will make me look at it.
I second that. I am in the same situation too. I was panicking a few weeks ago at the thought of what I need to do to finish. I am really dreading writing the thesis and there is not long to go- I hope to get an outline this week and show it to my supervisor.
