You can feel happy about your viva or sad.
You might feel ready to get started or nervous about what your examiners might ask.
You might feel certain of what you’ve done or unsure about work from several years ago.
There’s many things you might feel about your viva. How you feel could change with each day. The viva isn’t the most important thing you will ever do but it does matter.
As you get closer to your viva, if you find yourself feeling a strong emotion – good or bad – take a moment to ask yourself why. Take a moment to reflect on what it means. Take a moment to think about what you could do as a result.
Your feelings about the viva aren’t static, but you can’t simply change them. You can steer how you feel though.
How do you feel? What do you need to do?
