Hi Faded. I got my corrections approved so I am officially done! I really hope you get a positive answer very soon too.

It seems a bit drastic to sell your house unless you really need the money - couldn't you rent it out instead?

I agree that you absolutely need to get ethics clearing from your university about this. However, I am a bit confused about your reasons for not transcribing - surely if you are doing the translation, you understand the language so could transcribe it? I found transcription hard work but ultimately rewarding - so much comes out of the transcription process itself that I couldn't imagine letting someone else do it, although I suppose it also depends on the type of analysis you are going to use it for.

Faded - thinking of you. I am waiting to hear whether my admendments have been accepted and it is all I can do not to check my email every five minutes! I don't know how you must be feeling on tenterhooks all this time!

I was still writing my conclusion the night before I gave it in - asking around, it seems that this is pretty common. My usually super-organized husband was still writing his conclusion the morning before giving it in! Ha! You can do it. (Also I am sure you have already done this but have you factored in printing times? If you have to get it printed and bound by a specific supplier that might also take longer than you expect).

Congratulations! You are almost there now so put the negative comments out of mind and concentrate on that!

I agree with Tru. I think it sounds very positive. I know it sounds strange that they say it is up to you whether to do the added corrections but thinking about it, it would be very undiplomatic to say "nah, scrap those!" It sounds like they are trying to bring this to a satisfactory conclusion without anyone losing face.

Congratulations Hayley! I too have finished since posting on this thread although it took me a lot longer- I think you did very well to finish it before your baby arrives - much more sensible!

I had a similar experience on this site. I got stuck with the software I was working with and googled for solutions. It came up with a post of MINE on here, detailing how to resolve the problem! Not only had I forgotten how to solve the problem, I had forgotten even having the problem before!

Identify where you waste time. (For me that was procrastinating on Facebook and Mumsnet!) Stop doing it! (I still have these sites blocked on my computer - I have no willpower).

A lot of the articles I read in the first year ended up being a bit irrelevant as my project developed. By the end of writing I had a "core" of about twenty articles which were really useful, and which I knew really well. Of course, I cited many other sources but it is not really necessary to remember every article you read!

Hi. I had minor corrections and these were dealt with in five bulletin pointsat the end of the report. However, we had already discussed them during the viva so there wasn't really anything else to add (and also they were very clear things to add rather than being anything that needed more explanation).

Hi - I am sorry to hear you are still going through this. I wouldn't do any more revisions though as there seems to be no guarantee at this stage and you would actually be going against the regulations. I hope tru's suggestions are sufficient.
