Yes, you didn’t mind. Many graduate students these days seem to forget that their thesis must be signed off and approved by their committee in order to graduate. Many doctoral students tend to forget the importance of the doctoral committee and keeping in touch with the committee members, especially in the final stages of the thesis. It is also very easy for doctoral students to forget certain advice from a member of the jury, the presence of a member of the jury is not as dominant as that of a thesis supervisor. On the other hand, the jury members rarely forget the thesis advice they give the students.
I hope this doesn’t happen to you, but many doctoral committee members give advice during the application phase of a student’s thesis, only to ignore that advice or forget the sons student At the time of defending the thesis, the committee members give the unheeded advice, which is often a problem for graduate students who have to postpone their doctorate for a semester (if you’re lucky) or more. Don’t let this happen and make sure you are in regular contact with your thesis committee members and also make sure you record and follow up on any advice they give you.
What is the best age for a doctorate?
The best age for a doctorate is three years ago. Second time is now the best. In fact, the best age to get a PhD is when you can complete it. The sooner you finish your PhD, the more life and career you will have with it, but there is no optimal age.
Depending on the subject, a master’s degree can shorten the time needed to complete a doctorate. If your discipline’s doctoral programs are structured to assume you have a master’s degree before entering, then yes, you will get a doctorate faster.

Assuming you get to the end of your program, there are still two ways to fail.
The first is an unsatisfactory thesis. Whatever the reason, your thesis may be considered inadequate, lacking originality, reliable data, conclusive results or overall poor quality. In such cases, your examiners may need a thorough review before taking the speaking exam. Although this is rare, you may miss the program registration deadline and, unless you have valid reasons for an extension, you may not have enough time to complete your exam.
