Today’s Q and A went off with a a bit of a whimper. Distributed the examination criteria that are sent out with your work. Key advice: use these phrases discretely and explicitly in your introduction and conclusion.
Discussed overall honours awards (H1, H2A, H2B, H3) and how they determined. (Your results are weighted based on their credit contribution to the overall, with 36/96, which would be 3/8ths?, towards your research result. You need 80 or better from your exam to get a H1 overall, and regardless of other results you don’t get a H1 if you don’t get a 80 or better for the examination.)
The work goes to a third examiner if there is too great a discrepancy between the first two examiners, deciding if ‘too great’ is more than 15, or more than 20, marks.
The work is usually physically sent to examiners, it often is not returned. If you want more copies, you should get them printed when you get the three copies for submission.
You need to sign the declaration page of each of the copies.
There is a simple structure which you will be shown (declaration, acknoweldgements, abstract, table of contents, etc).
The work is submitted via building 9, level 4. Bundle the three up securely, have a cover sheet, and they have my name, not your supervisors, on them.
There is a page that I said you and your supervisor sign which basically says the work is finished. I’ve turned that into a google form this year so your supervisor only needs to fill that in (it’s at the bottom of https://consilience-nls.com/supervision/).
You will be finding suitable printers shortly. They can tell you how long their turn around times are. Usually it is 2 days. We have used ImpactDigital a lot.
