It’s hard to imagine the first viva. When I tried it made me wonder about the last one too. If there was to be a last one it could be special for all sorts of reasons…
- “We’re changing the process…”
- “It’s the end of an era…”
- “The Vice Chancellor is going to be there too!”
I smile to myself as I think about this – but it also reminds me that none of that would matter. Not really.
What matters is the work and the talented person who did it. These are the special things about the viva.
These are the things that matter.
It’s unlikely that your viva, whenever it is, would be the last one ever. It will still be incredibly special.
