Make a little list of things you have to do for your viva prep, things that you know will help. It might include:
- Read all of my thesis;
- Read two or three papers by my examiners;
- Chat to friends about my research;
- Check the regulations;
- Find out how my video viva will be done;
- Check my supervisor’s availability for helping me.
Just a little list – this example is by no means complete, but there shouldn’t be hundreds of things! Some examples can be crossed off neatly, others will take time. You might want to break those down, depending on your preferences.
It’s much easier to know when you’re ready if you plot out what you need to do to get ready.
A little to-do list could help a lot.
