Chances of success

Hi all,

I finally submitted my thesis after receiving a referral over a year ago.

With the new thesis, which was definitely a major improvement over the original, I also submitted a 16 page document that was an exact copy of the examiner's recommendations along with my point-by-point description of how I had made the correction and the corresponding page numbers in the thesis that exemplified these.

I gave 200 per cent to this version of the thesis, and addressed every single point in question. Still, I'm concerned I won't pass - I guess this is the shock residue left from the initial referral! Otherwise, my supervisors and I don't know what more I could have done to meet the requirements.

What are the realistic chances that I'll pass this time? Can the examiner still fail me even if I have addressed every issue?

Thanks,

Tenzin

Hi Tenzin, it would be very very rare for you to be failed at this point, but I believe there was a case of failure discussed on this forum at one point, or at least the examiner came back again wanting more corrections.

If you've done everything they have asked, I don't think you need to worry.

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to let you know that I passed with minor corrections and no need of a second viva.

Incredible feeling!

Best of luck to everyone!
