Hi

I handed in my masters dissertation a few weeks ago and I’ve now discovered a referencing mistake in my literature review. A medical publication I’d been citing has had a number of updates over the years and instead of citing the earlier year (2009) I’ve cited 2018. I could kick myself. I’m very anxious about this and not sure if I should just wait it out or speak to my advisor. I had noticed one small typo - an extra space and mentioned it to him (before I realised about the year thing) and he told me stop reading it and I wish I had listened. I’m so mortified and hoped to apply for a PhD next year. I honestly can’t believe I’ve made such a careless mistake. Marks are due out at the end of Nov.
