The viva can result in several possible outcomes, ranging from a straight Pass, through various levels of amendments and revisions to re-submission, the award of MPhil or (very rarely) outright Fail. Each of these possible outcomes is discussed in some detail, with reference to university regulations and documentation. The questions which are often asked of examiners on the assessment documentation are used as an illustration. The chapter covers how to take the next steps after the outcome of your viva has been decided, including how to approach amendments, further work or a further examination. Appeal processes and the grounds on which a candidate might appeal are also discussed. Recovering from the viva and the sense of achievement, mixed with a feeling of anti-climax which candidates often report, are covered.
