5. Regulations concerning Dyslexic Candidates

Pages 1101, l.9, to 1102, l. 11: delete existing Regulation and substitute the
following:

Dyslexic Candidates in Examinations

Regulations of the Proctors

A candidate who is dyslexic may apply to the Proctors, through the Senior
Tutor or other proper officer of his or her college, other society, or approved
institution (a) for special examination arrangements relating to the
dyslexia, and (b) for the condition to be taken into account by the
Examiners as a special factor that may affect his or her performance in
examinations. Such application should be made as soon as possible after
matriculation and in any event not later than the date of entry of the
candidate's name for the first examination for which special arrangements are
sought. The application must be supported by a statement from a chartered
psychologist approved by the Proctors. Such statement is to be based on a
review of an assessment of the candidate carried out by a suitably-qualified
person and on such further assessment of the candidate as the chartered
psychologist considers necessary in order to form a judgement. The Proctors
will issue guidance periodically on the nature of the assessments which will be
considered appropriate.

Candidates who are reported to be dyslexic by one of the approved
chartered psychologists will normally be allowed extra time in examinations.
The Proctors will also have regard to any recommendation from such chartered
psychologist for other special arrangements (e.g. use of a word-processor). The
special arrangements approved by the Proctors will normally apply to all
University Examinations to be taken by the candidate during his or her course
of study; it shall be the responsibility of the candidate to apply as described
above for any subsequent change to these arrangements.

In each case, the Proctors will give authority for appropriate
statements explaining the effects of dyslexia to be supplied to the chairman of
examiners of the relevant examination and placed on the examination scripts
of the dyslexic candidate, in order to assist the examiners in adjudicating the
merits of the candidate's work.

A candidate or his or her college, other society, or approved
institution who is dissatisfied with any aspect of the Proctors' decision in
respect of his or her application for special examination arrangements relating
to dyslexia, may within fourteen days of the date of the Proctors' decision
appeal in writing to the Chairman of the Educational Policy and Standards
Committee (who may nominate another member of the Committee, other than
one of the Proctors, to adjudicate such appeal).'

CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY IN THE
SCIENCE AREA—TRAFFIC MEASURES

Measures Proposed

A considerable amount of building work is being undertaken in the Science
Area over the next two to three years. Much of the activity is concentrated at
the east end of the Physiology Building.

To this end the University has agreed a strategy for managing traffic
through the Science Area during the works to ensure the safety of University
Members and staff. This will have a significant effect on parking and
deliveries.

Copies of drawings showing the proposals have been sent to
administrators of departments within the Science Area, and are being posted
on the Travel Web-site (http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/travel/).

The proposals involve:

—closure of the junction of Sherrington Road and Hinshelwood Road
junction (to the east of the Department of Physiology);

—loss of some car-parking;

—creation of a one-way system around Dorothy Hodgkin Road (from
South Parks Road to Parks Road direction) for cars and small vans only;

—cutting off any through-route within the Science Area from Parks Road
to South Parks Road;

—encouraging car users and delivery drivers to enter by the Science Area
entrance closest to where they park/deliver;

—allowing only emergency and exceptionally large or tall vehicles to pass
through the closed junction in the direction of Parks Road only.


Timing

An immediate closure is forced by the need to relocate high-voltage and other
cables running to the east of Physiology. The works are scheduled to take place
from Monday, 25 June to Monday, 23 July. The precise timing of the closure
during this period is subject to final discussion, but the junction will be closed
for the greater part of the period.

Works for the Oxford Centre for Gene Function are due to commence
at the end of October/beginning of November. These will carry on until the
spring of 2003. The junction will be closed for the greater part of this period.


Closure of access to the Parks

The gate from the Science Area into the Parks was closed on 1 June. On this
date the area in front was passed to the contractor. The gate will be closed
until the end of the Gene Function building programme.

Further information concerning these arrangements may be obtained from
Colin George, University Surveyor's Office (telephone: Oxford (2)88589, e-
mail: colin.george@survey.ox.ac.uk).
