Those in charge of this Library will periodically send a statement of the theses received to the Vice Principal's Office for Graduate Studies and Research, which will validate the said list for purposes of compliance with the legal provision concerning the safe filing of Doctoral Theses on the part of the Doctoral Studies Commission concerned.
The Examining Board will issue an assessment report on, together with an overall grade for, the Thesis, which will be either "not apt", "pass", "highly acceptable" or "excellent". The Examining Board will be able to assign the mention of "cum laude" if the overall rating is excellent, to be expressed, were it the case, in the sense of the unanimous affirmative vote of all of its members. The counting of votes for the award of “cum laude” will be held in different session corresponding to the defense of the doctoral thesis.
Doctoral Thesis – A Route To Be A Doctor
Whereas the student takes one term to write a term paper and perhaps one year to write a master's thesis, the doctoral candidate may spend several years writing a doctoral thesis. These years must be highly productive and efficient in both research and writing; one must not procrastinate at all. The candidate who does not proceed efficiently may have difficulty completing the doctoral thesis before its statute of limitations runs out.
Bolker, Joan. Writing Your Dissertation in Fifteen Minutes a Day: A Guide to Starting, Revising, and Finishing Your Doctoral Thesis. New York: Henry Holt, 1998.In most universities, candidates must defend their doctoral theses in front of a panel of experts. Therefore, although the candidate should choose an original, manageably narrow topic, he or she must learn everything available about that topic's general area. Moreover, the candidate must be able to recall that information. The student should make careful notes of all research and review those notes from time to time, lest he or she forget the material during the writing process. The candidate should be aware that a writing project that takes several years and fills several hundred pages can overwhelm the brain at the last minute before defense; therefore, the candidate should review the information steadily throughout the years of the development of the thesis.
