Corrections done and dusted, took six months to produce an extra 61 pages with three more experiments in the lab. Got them signed off this week. Graduate in January!

Humanities. Passed my viva with no corrections. Emotionally drained, happy nonetheless.

Yesterday, 20/5/14 I passed my viva (with amends.... Boooo). Can I call myself doctor yet or do I have to wait until I submit my revisions?

Passed my viva in December, final (minor) corrections signed off in February, went to the graduation ceremony which was totally worth it--it somehow gives some closure to the whole PhD saga and lets you move onto the next phase of life, whatever that is.

Received conferment notice today having passed my viva amendments. Not so much relief as shock!

Submitted back in June 2014, just informed yesterday 8/12/2014 that my minor corrections have been accepted and I'm clear to graduate. 6 years part-time while holding down full-time work (and a young family) throughout. PhinisheD!!

Submitted on September 30 2014. Passed my viva with minor revisions on November 14. Got my correction pass letter three days ago, on December 9 2014.
Four years part time, now I can finally put the Dr. on my name and move on on my academic path, finished!!
