Vet.M.B. Degree: Final Veterinary Examination


(Statutes and Ordinances, p. 499)

With effect from 1 October 2000

The purpose of the amendments is (i) to commence Part III of the examination earlier in the Easter Term (this will provide more time for marking, particularly of the papers in Surgery, and reduce pressure on students, who currently sit four papers on two consecutive days) and (ii) to remove references to the submission of case-books, as under current practice students' practical experience during their extra-mural studies is recorded and monitored in a format more in line with that considered appropriate by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.

Regulation 12.

By amending the first two sentences so as to read;

Part III of the Final Veterinary Examination shall be held twice a year beginning on the Friday that next precedes the last day of Full Easter Term and on the Monday that is or next precedes the first day of the Michaelmas Term. Part III shall be divided into two sections as follows:

(i) animal surgery;
(ii) veterinary medicine.

Regulation 13(c).

By replacing the words 'a case-book containing records, attested by the veterinary surgeons concerned, of cases attended during the candidate's practical experience of veterinary work' by the words 'records of his or her extra-mural studies in a form prescribed by the Faculty Board from time to time'.


(Statutes and Ordinances, p. 505)

In the Revised Regulations for the Final Veterinary Examination, Regulation 12 above becomes Regulation 18 and Regulation 13 above becomes Regulation 19. Amendments to these regulations have been made as set out above. These amendments will take effect according to the timetable in Revised Regulation 1.
