Warming Up

How will you warm up on the day of your viva? You might not need to perform vocal exercises or physically stretch, but you could:

  • Read through a summary of your thesis one more time.
  • Check that you have everything packed in your bag.
  • Select a special outfit to wear.
  • Rehearse using your computer and software if you have a video viva.
  • Chat with your supervisor if there’s one more point to be sure of.
  • Write something to get any thoughts or feelings out of your head.

Or you could simply sit down with a cup of tea or coffee and wait for the right time to arrive.
