ISDEV received good news in the arena of viva voce of its two RISDEV (ISDEV Postgraduate by Research) students. Wan Khairul Aiman Wan Mokhtar has added the tally to ISDEV records of "Excellent PhD Thesis". He was awarded Grade 1 (the highest scale accorded to by Universiti Sains Malaysia for a viva) by the Board of Examiners during his viva on Monday, 18 April 2016 at C06 Conference Room, School of Social Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM).

As the culture in ISDEV prior to any viva, there are two routines that are strictly adhered to prepare students spiritually, emotionally, physically as well as intellectually. First is a mock viva which is usually held on the eve of the viva. Both of them had their mock viva on Friday, 15 April 2016.
