This question already has an answer here:
I successfully defended my master's thesis last December. I had 18/20 and it went well. However, my adviser invited me to carry out research in the area, which I accepted.
When I was writing the first paper, I noticed a big error in the data analysis. This does not affect the conclusions and the values of the estimates are very similar (with and without the error) the question is what do I do now? I'm afraid to tell my advisor and they cancel my master's degree. What do you think? My ethics does not allow me to write the paper again with the error, but if correct my advisor will find ..
Any suggestions? I'm sure no one will notice the error, but I do not know. I´m very afraid of this Thank You
