(Statutes and Ordinances, p. 354)

With immediate effect

The requirements for the examination in Comparative Vertebrate Biology (CVB) have been amended by removing the requirement for a viva voce examination. The regulations have been amended as follows:

Regulation 20(d).

By amending the regulation so as to read:

(d)  The examination in Comparative Vertebrate Biology shall consist of:  
  (i) a combined written and practical paper of an hour and a half, which shall contain short answer questions (Section I)1 and a practical examination (Section II)1; candidates will be allowed forty-five minutes to complete each section;
  (ii) one written paper of one-and-a-half hours, which shall contain essay questions (Section III).

1 In each subject of Part IB, Sections I and II of the examination also serve as the examination in the corresponding subject of the Second M.B. Examination or the Second Vet.M.B. Examination.
