When you’re getting ready for your viva it could help to ask yourself why a lot.
- If something is particularly strong in your research: why is this good?
- If you find a typo or a part that needs changing: why will that change make things better?
- If you find yourself unsure about something: why are you unsure and what could you do?
- If you feel nervous, confident, uncertain or amazing: why do you feel that way and what does that mean for you?
Whatever happens, whatever you find, what you feel – if you ask yourself why you can go a little deeper. Ask yourself why and you can uncover more.
Ask yourself why and you can find a way to become even more ready for your viva.
