Corrections and resubmission
After your viva you are very likely to have some corrections to complete before you are awarded your doctorate. Very few people have no corrections at all. The extent can range from a few spelling mistakes to rewriting or adding complete chapters. People can find it very hard to carry them out, but you are probably closer to completion that you initially feel. Aim to complete your corrections within the deadline set or, ideally, as soon as possible to use the momentum.
In order to be sure that your corrections make the right changes:
- take notes during the viva and write them up immediately after
- meet with your main supervisor to discuss the changes that you need to make
- analyse the examiners' report carefully to make sure that you have dealt with all of the issues that they raise
- proofread your work again
