Your thesis will be classified in one of the following ways:
Passed with no requirement for correction or amendments.
Passed subject to minor revisions as indicated in the report and carried out to the satisfaction of the board.
Passed subject to substantive revisions along the lines indicated in the report and carried out to the satisfaction of the board without further reference to the examiners.
Resubmit if it shows some merit and may be sufficiently improved for resubmission.
You will be advised of the further work required and the deadline for re-submission, usually a year. You will be notified in writing of the procedure for resubmission of a thesis.
Resubmitted theses can only be passed or failed.
You are not awarded a degree, and you can not resubmit your thesis in a revised form.
- You, your school or examiners may be asked for more information before the board classifies your thesis.
- If an examiner's report is more than three months overdue, the board may classify the thesis on the recommendation of the reports available.
- The board may also ask you to complete an oral examination of your thesis.
