Good answers don’t just appear on the day.
Good answers to your examiners’ questions happen because you’ve done the work.
Good answers happen because you know things.
Good answers happen because you’re talented.
I think great answers in the viva come when you give yourself a few extra seconds to think…
…what else do I know?
…is that the best thing to start with?
…what did I say in my thesis?
…what did I do like this in my research?
A few seconds can make good into great, but don’t stress.
Good is enough.
