How to make an effective thesis presentation for your finals defense.
A Thesis presentation is by far the most important presentation of a college student's life. If you are in high school, your most important write-up is your term paper. But fortunately, you won't have to present it on class and defend it. In college, however, especially when you are graduation, you have to present your research on class and defend it in a week called "Hell-Week" (a term coined to describe a week that is so unpleasant for any college life. I first heard about this term from a dorm receptionist.)
On the "Hell-Week", you start to become less tidy but more focus on what is really important. The Defense. and graduation of course.
|I want to Graduate!|
A thesis adviser once told me that juries no nothing about a student's research. The only way that they will know something about the research is through the student's presentation. This is the reason why student's should make their presentations as clear and as less boring as possible. Because if you have a really boring presentation, you might end up encountering the Four Common Dreaded Juries of all.
|Four Juries you don't want to encounter|
There are actually four kinds of Juries you don't want to encounter during the defense. The most common jury is the most plastic jury of all. This is the jury that looks like he's very serious in listening but he's actually thinking about something else. The second jury is the jury that is so transparent. This jury acts bored when he wants to whether you like it or not. The third jury is the jury that day dreams while the fourth is as you can see on the drawing, the jury that's so busy talking to the audience you can't even see him on the table anymore.
These juries give you a low score and even fail you.
