I have my viva in under an hour.

I feel sick.

I think I might cry.

Edit: I no longer want to be sick or cry. I passed... full details are in one of my replies below! Thanks everyone!! 8-)

Sending you out very positive vibes!!!(up)

If you've got to this stage, YOU KNOW your stuff. Now is the opportunity to show your knowledge. Try to enjoy it and I hope you'll find that this waiting is the most difficult part!

Oh Jinkim, I'm sure you'll ace it. You've worked hard so now just take a deep breath, go in there and get the proper reward for all that work. You'll be fine! (up)

I have a feeling that that moment may be the scariest hour of my life so far. Hope all went well. I've been putting off thoughts of my viva for the last 2 1/2 year but am going to have to face it soon.

wow, jinkim is probably in her viva still! I get a nervous feeling just reading threads like this, I don't want to know how I'm going to feel for my actual viva.

This waiting is murder.... thinking of you Jinkim - it must be over by now, maybe you're stuck in the SU bar celebrating? I too cannot imagine how i will feel with less than an hour to go til the viva - I don't want to imagine it actually

I can remember exactly how I felt with under an hour to go to my viva, and Jinkim's post summed it up very well.

Hope things are going ok.
