Submitting your thesis for classification
After you receive your examiners’ reports, you need to prepare a formal response and your revise your thesis for classification under the guidance of your supervisors. The amount of time you have to prepare your response depends on the outcome you received.
Once your supervisors are satisfied that your thesis should be classified, they will prepare a citation and sign off on your classification documentation. They will also write a memo indicating their support of your revisions. Your Chair of Examiners, or a nominee, will also review your thesis and sign off on your documentation before it is submitted for classification.
You need to coordinate the sign-off from your supervisors as well as the Chair of Examiners, so it's essential you let them know the deadlines you are working towards. You should allow the Chair of Examiners a reasonable period of time for them to review your documentation, so factor this into your planning, remembering that sometimes Chair of Examiners are reviewing a number of theses at the one time.
