The Ugh Factor


The most common response to thinking about thesis corrections.

Of course, any kind of corrections – minor or major – are unwanted, but they’re not bad in themselves. Examiners require corrections for lots of reasons: typos, clarity or because they’re just needed to help the thesis. Corrections are required for good reasons and to help a thesis be the best it can be.

And still: ugh.

You don’t want them, but you’re probably going to get them as a result of your viva. When you have a list from your examiners, break it down; figure out a plan of action and get them done.

Receiving thesis corrections? Ugh.

Passing your viva? Yay!
