Due to thesis correction times and other standard administrative matters, the date between my effective ending of academic duties (i.e. the thesis discussion day) and the date in which the award was notified to me differ by a month and a half.
In the CVs I have sent out I have put the date of award as it is the only ending date I have on an official document (although it is nothing more than a university page, the official document has yet to come).
I was pretty happy with such choice and had no doubts. However, having listed my thesis supervisor as reference, I am a bit concerned of the fact that the dates he can communicates (ending of thesis work) and the date on my CV may not add up.
Is this a false problem? Should I stick with what I have and then explain it in case this comes up in an interview? Or should I put the day on which I ended my actual studies?
