The Countdown

What will you do with five days left before your viva? What has to be done by then?

When you’ve four days remaining how might you feel?

Three days to go and you could need to make some decisions… What will you wear? What final preparations do you need to make?

Two days remaining and no questions to ask. Just rest. Mark a day closer to your viva by relaxing.

One. Last checks. Last thoughts. Last reminders. And tomorrow is tomorrow.


You can count down the days as they arrive, engaging with your feelings and the situation as it occurs – or you can think ahead.

Think ahead about how you want to feel. Think about what you want the situation to be like.

Steer tomorrow through what you do today. Start work now to find yourself in a good place when you arrive at your viva.
