 There will be two written reviews of your thesis: one by your supervisor, the other by an opponent. Both reviews shall be available to you at least one week before the defense. The reviews may contain questions that you will have to answer during the defense. If so, prepare the answers. You may prepare slides to back the answers if applicable. In that case, don't include these slides in your main presentation. They don't count towards your time limit. Wait until asked, then show them (they may be part of the same presentation file, e.g. you may put them after the Thank You slide). There will be two written reviews of your thesis: one by your supervisor, the other by an opponent.

-Typically several students defend their theses before the same committee on the same day. The defense is open to public (except for the part when the committee discusses your grade). The scenario is as follows: the chair shortly introduces you, then you get your 10 minutes to present the work. Then the supervisor reads (or summarizes) their review, possibly asks questions, you answer them. Then the same for the opponent. Then the other committee members may ask questions (yes, these will be questions you did not know about in advance), then the other guests. Then you and all other non-committee-members will be sent out of the room, the committee will negotiate, call you back and announce the verdict. Altogether it should fit within ​30 minutes ​but unfortunately it is often longer.+Typically several students defend their theses before the same committee on the same day.
