29 June: Last possible day for a viva exam (oral exam for those on the cusp of passing or failing)

Specific dates for exams don’t seem to be released yet, though I admit to finding the web page for the examination schools quite bewildering. I seem to have been clicking through a great circle for the last ten minutes.

1 July: Canada Day / Party like the world is coming to an end

Maybe not quite apocalyptic, but some celebration will be in order (especially if I’ve found something good to move on to).

I think our MPhil exams were core paper on the Monday, and all over by Thurs. Knowing precise times isn’t really too relevant right now.

The Dorset retreat sounds really good.

Will there be internet access?

Wandering back through web comics, you find things about thesis writing that are very true.

From David Patrikarakos, a few hours ago:

“For those of you that requested the actual dates for the reading week and those
of you deciding whether to come- we now have official confirmation – they are
from Saturday 31st March to Friday 6th April.”

They said Dorset, but it’s actually in Devon.
