I know that feeling, though for me the worst part of the Masters assessment was having to go and do a presentation. The actual paper dissertation was a breeze compared to that.


Did you have to do a viva?

Yeah. My Masters dissertation was on 3D Animation so I had to defend/explain things like my choice of software, modelling and animation techniques, Lighting choices. I even got quizzed on how I put together the DVD that I used to submit it, including my menu design and choice to include a voiceover outtakes section :lol: (Though the examiner loved the outtakes so think I got some bonus points for that)

An outtakes section in a Masters thesis - that wins bonus points from me for sure! :lol:

Although to be fair I just wrote my acknowledgements section and the most earnest thank yous are to a cat and a dog. :slol:

If they haven't told you about it then it won't happen, we were all told well in advance that it was going to be happening.

Can't even remember if I had an acknowledgements section. God I just realised it's been 10 years since I submitted it :dread:
