EDUCATIONAL POLICY AND STANDARDS COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL

Decree

The Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council has made the following decree, to come into effect on 8 March.

Decree (2): Amendment of the maximum penalty available to examiners for late submission of course work

Explanatory note
