I past my PhD viva with minor corrections in June. Both examiners were happy and promised to send lists of corrections the following week.
Unfortunately, only one did that (and confirmed I corrected all of his comments). The other examiner hasn't replied any emails from me and my advisor for two months until now.
This examiner is a really nice person, so I'm afraid something wrong might have happened to him. If this is the case, I will also be in a great trouble, because if I can't finish my PhD, I have to enrol again in September, i.e. next month.
I'm doing a postdoc in the US, doing enrolment again means I have to go back to my school in the UK to show my original passport and Visa etc.
My advisor told me I should not worry. But the September deadline is close, given 2 months without any responses.
My questions are:
- What should I do now?
- I also know prof A, who is the head of the group of this examiner. I talked to him twice in workshops, and connect with him on Facebook. It means he only knows that I'm a random student in that neighbour university. Should I ask him about my examiner?
