Decree (4): Appointment of chairmen of
examiners
and publication of examination timetables

Explanatory note

The following decree, made at the suggestion of the Clerk of the
Schools and
on the recommendation of the General Board, amends the provisions

the
examiners to be involved in these processes. The new provision
empowers a
majority of the examiners to appoint a chairman of the board (i.e. it
gives
them discretion to act if, for example, they think it would be
unreasonable
for there to be a delay in identifying the chairman); it also
empowers the
relevant chairman of examiners, on the advice of the Clerk of the
Schools
and subject to the agreement of the Vice-Chancellor and Proctors, to
fix the
time and place of each examination and to publish a timetable under
his or
her sole name. This will avoid delays if the full list of examiners
is not
known when a timetable is ready for publication.

Text of Decree (4)

1 In Examination Decrees, 1998, p.
1054, l.
10, delete `number' and substitute `majority'.

2 Ibid., l. 11, delete `the examiners shall'
and
substitute `those examiners shall be empowered to'.

3 Ibid., p. 1055, l. 2, delete `The examiners'
and
substitute `The chairman of examiners'.

4 Ibid., l. 7, delete `they' and substitute
`he or
she'.

pilot projects and experience in new techniques;

---Pilot project grants for functional Magnetic
Resonance Imaging, to enable investigators to start projects at the
Oxford Centre for Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain
(FMRIB);

---Travel fund, especially for costs of
visits to other laboratories or to training courses to learn new
techniques.

Support is normally restricted to members of the McDonnell--Pew
centre but, in exceptional circumstances, applications from others
will be considered.
