Viva timetable

Viva's will take place on Thursday 11-02-10 in the Complexity Workroom. Each viva will be 20 minutes long with 20 minutes to prepare two questions selected randomly from the list of questions.

These questions will form a basis for discussion in the viva but you can expect to be asked other ones too. Extra 5 minute buffers has been included between vivas in the schedule too allow for discussion of assessed work.
