Degree Committee for the Faculty of Physics & Chemistry


Checking the corrected work and informing the Degree Committee

When you made your joint post-viva recommendation to the Degree Committee you will have indicated which examiner - the Internal, External or both - will be responsible for checking corrections. The corrected work is sent to you direct by the candidate.

You should check the corrected thesis against the list of corrections. When completed to your satisfaction, you should confirm to the Degree Committee Office that you have approved the corrections.

We strongly prefer you to complete and send the appropriate form (PhD3, MSc3 or MPhil3) to confirm your approval. If this is difficult you can  to let us know. Your e-mail should contain the name of the student, your full name and whether you are the Internal or External Examiner, and a brief statement along the lines of "I have checked (name of candidate)'s corrected thesis and am satisfied they have made the changes recommended in the joint examiners' report after their oral examination."


Answering queries about the corrections

If, after the oral, a student has queries about what the examiners mean by certain corrections, they are advised to ask their supervisor to clarify this with the Examiners, rather than contacting you direct.
