Hi Pjlu, yes, I think so. As long as it is about the science, and so called "positive results" aren't needed to pass, then that is OK. I think that's what has been nagging at me this past day or so. I like the analogy your Masters supervisor gave - the story of the data. That's cool, and will be good to bear in mind whilst analyse the last part of the data (rather than I'm looking for a certain result here).

What are you doing now days Pjlu? Have you started job hunting? (I hope I have remembered correctly that there was a recent thread from you about having passed your viva).

Hi Tudor, I've been employed as a Deputy or as an Assstant Head at Secondary Colleges for a few years now, so my thesis was completed part time. I've got a stint as Acting Principal in a few weeks for 3 months and then will return to Assistant Head at the same College. I am just wating for corrections to be approved before graduation and then I am leaving the forum as my work now is more aligned with educational leadership in a professional capacity not as an academic. Very happy now with this pathway. Just waiting for corrections to be done. Will continue to write as a professional though, rather than as an academic, and I spend a lot of time supporting students, parents, colleagues and team reports, so feel my expertise now goes to a different group. So all good...just waiting for corrections approval (fingers crossed) and then moving on. Loved the forum but I believe that my time on it is coming to a natural termination. Better go, just dashed home for some lunch and must get back to work. Cheers :) (PS if lots of typos present it is because I am typing this without my glasses-left them at work, lol, hope it is okay).

A paper I recently sent for publishing had a majority of negative results. 4 out of the 7 hypothesises were exactly the opposite of the assumptions we made. I defended it and it made for an interesting discussion! So, I'm sure you'll do well with defending the findings you have! Good luck.

Cheers for sharing that, Nerdy - I'm feeling better about things now. : )

Pjlu - that is great! Things sound exciting! Very sad to think that you won't be on the forum anymore. But it has served its purpose. Thanks so much for all your friendly and insightful replies. I wish you all the best going forward. Best wishes, Tudor.
