The Faculty Board of Engineering give notice that the form of the examinations to be taken in the Easter Term 2006 shall be as follows. Arrangements for reading time before the examination starts, and for papers not mentioned below, are as for last year.

Each candidate will be required to offer eight modules in total and undertake a project. All modules will carry equal weight, whether assessed by written paper or course-work, or by a combination of written paper and course-work. Where a module is assessed by written paper and course-work, the course-work will carry weight equal to one quarter of a module. In the exceptional case of a dissertation being submitted in place of a module, the dissertation will carry weight equal to one module. The project will carry marks equal to six modules.

For modules 4C7, 4C9, and 4M12 only, candidates may bring into the examination room notes on the module they have written personally by hand, and any notes authorized for use in the examination room by the module leader. This includes lecture notes issued by the module lecturers.

Candidates should refer to the Faculty Board's Notice, dated September 2005, on the use of calculators in examinations.
