Minh does an excellent job during his PhD candidacy exam. From UofA guidelines “The candidacy examination determines whether the student has adequate knowledge of the discipline and of the subject matter relevant to the thesis, and whether the student has the ability to pursue and complete original research at an advanced level.” So it is clear you do! Congratulations Minh!
