Hi all,
I have compiled questions from various sources and trying to write answers. Done with first round of reading of the thesis. I am feeling nervous now and I seem to forget what is in the thesis :( Swetch.

Hi Swetcha, I completely agree, it's so hard to remember points about details in the thesis that occur when you read through it. I'm hoping to read through at the least the key chapters once more before the viva. I'll have to make notes too otherwise I'll forget the points!

My viva is very soon. About a third of the way through rereading it. Got to reread lots of literature.

So many typos :( Noticed about 82 (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) so far, and still got more thesis to read than I have done already!

Less than 48 hours to go until my viva....

I am not as nervous as I thought I would be at this stage, I seemed to have calmed a bit, for now......

I had a good meeting with my prof. yesterday, I went through all my questions and he gave me some answers to prepare for.

I am just going to go through my thesis again and try and keep calm...

How are you doing Nf? Not long also now.....

I am really at the stage where I just want it to be over and look back. I cannot believe 5 years (in my case) of work is condensed into 2 hours or so of oral questioning. Bizarre in a way.

Will post back on Monday, post-viva :-)
