Mock Vivas

I participated in a mock viva (ie thesis defense) today.

I weirdly enjoy them…much more so than real viva. (No paperwork! Less stress!) I also enjoy them a lot more the research progress reviews or end of year interviews (Completed work! The student is “mature”! You get to see the finished project!)

I actually enjoy all those things but the mock viva hits a sweet spot that makes it a pure kind of fun.

(And a part of me enjoys when I’m asked to be super mean and tough. I don’t let that part have as much free reign as I used to.)
