GENERAL PURPOSES COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL

Decrees

The General Purposes Committee of Council has made the following decrees, to come into effect on 10 May.

Decree (1): Composition of the Modern History Board

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the General Purposes Committee of Council, on the recommendation of Modern History Board and with the concurrence of the Humanities Board, amends the composition of the Modern History Board.

Text of Decree (1)

1 In Ch. II, Sect. VI, § 1 (Statutes, 2000, p. 241), after `Medieval and Modern Languages,' insert `Modern History,'.

2 Ibid., SCHEDULE (p. 242), delete the list headed `MODERN HISTORY'.

3 Ibid., § 4, cl. 1 (p. 243), after `Modern Languages,' insert `Modern History,'.

4 Ibid., delete:

`Modern History     8    12'.

5 Ibid., cl. 2 (p. 244), delete:

`Modern History     4     6'.

6 Ibid. (p. 250), insert new Sect. XI as follows and renumber existing Sectt. XI-XIV (pp. 250--1, as renumbered by Decree (1) of 26 July 2001 and Decree (1) of 25 October 2001, Gazette, Vol. 131, p. 1354; Vol. 132, p. 248) as Sectt. XII-- XV:

`Section XI. Board of the Faculty of Modern History

1. The Board of the Faculty of Modern History shall be constituted as follows:

(1) the Regius Professor of Modern History;

(2) the board's Director of Graduate Studies;

(3) the board's Undergraduate Studies Co-ordinator;

(4) the Chairman of the Faculty of Modern History;

(5)--(15) eleven persons elected by and from among the members of the Faculty of Modern History holding posts on the establishment or under the aegis of the board.

2. The board may co-opt not more than six additional members in accordance with Sect. VI, § 6.'

Decree (2): Conington Prize

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the General Purposes Committee of Council, on the recommendation of the Classics and Philosophy Boards and with the concurrence of the Humanities Board, will enable candidates for the Conington Prize to resubmit their dissertation in a field different from that of their original dissertation. The faculty boards consider that the present exclusion of that possibility is unfair to candidates whose work is interdisciplinary and could therefore be classified as belonging to more than one of the categories covered by the prize. At the same time opportunity is taken also to correct an earlier amendment to the decree governing the prize whereby the new Classics Board was made the board of management in place of the former Literae Humaniores Board, rather than, as should be the case, the Classics and Philosophy Boards jointly.

Text of Decree (2)

1 In Ch. IX, Sect. I, § 51, cl. 2 (Statutes, 2000, p. 610, as amended by Decree (1) of 25 October 2001, Gazette, p. 248), delete `Board of the Faculty of Classics' and substitute `Boards of the Faculties of Classics and Philosophy'.

2 Ibid., cl. 3, after `sending in the dissertations,' delete `the board' and substitute `the relevant board (that is, the Board of the Faculty of Classics for the fields specified under (a) and (b) below, and the Board of the Faculty of Philosophy for the field specified under (c) below)'.

3 Ibid., after `In case of doubt' delete `the board' and substitute `the relevant board'.

4 Ibid., cll. 5 and 8 (p. 611), in each case delete `the board' and substitute `the relevant board'.

5 Ibid., cl. 6, delete `The board' and substitute `The relevant board'.

6 Ibid., delete cl. 7 and substitute:

`7. The prize shall not be awarded more than once to the same person. A previously unsuccessful candidate may resubmit his or her dissertation, or an amended version of it, on not more than two occasions, subject to the provisions of clause 4 above.'

7 Ibid., cl. 9, delete `the board' and substitute `the two boards'.

Decree (3): Derby Scholarships and Pelham Studentship

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the General Purposes Committee of Council, on the recommendation of the Classics Board and with the concurrence of the Humanities Board, allows the faculty board to amend the annual value of the Derby Scholarships and the Pelham Studentship. This change is aimed at making the awards more attractive to students. In recent years very few applications have been received for the awards, and on occasion no awards have been made. The main purpose of the trust funds concerned is to provide the respective awards, with it being permissible to use any surplus income for other purposes related to the advancement of classical learning.

Text of Decree (3)

1 In Ch. IX, Sect. I, § 79, cl. 1, concerning the Derby Scholarships (Statutes, 2000, p. 622), delete `and shall be of the annual value of £100 ... state studentship)' and substitute `. The value of the scholarships shall be determined by the Board of the Faculty of Classics.'

2 Ibid., § 265, cl. 6, concerning the Pelham Studentship (p. 706), delete `The value ... state studentship' and substitute `The value of the studentship shall be determined by the Board of the Faculty of Classics'.

Decree (6): Establishment of Honour Moderations and Preliminary Examination in Computer Science

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the Mathematical and Physical Sciences Board, with the approval of the Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council, provides for the establishment of Honour Moderations and a Preliminary Examination in Computer Science. Currently, candidates for the Honour School of Computer Science take Honour Moderations or the Preliminary Examination in Mathematics and Computer Science. The new Honour Moderations and Preliminary Examination in Computer Science will differentiate between the two degree courses from the start and make the Computer Science course more attractive to potential students who desire a less mathematical degree course. The decree also changes the word `Computation' to `Computer Science' in the decrees relating to Mathematics and Computer Science, and revises the arrangements for the designation of examiners for the Preliminary Examination in Mathematics and Computer Science.

Associated changes in regulations are set out in `Examinations and Boards' below.

Text of Decree (6)

Decree (7): Preliminary Examinations in Chemistry, Physics, and certain other Physical Sciences

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the Mathematical and Physical Sciences Board, with the approval of the Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council, creates new Preliminary Examinations in Physics and Chemistry. Previously these two subjects, along with Earth Sciences and Materials Science, formed part of the Preliminary Examination in certain Physical Sciences which was created to facilitate the sharing of papers between these subjects in the first year. This scheme of shared papers no longer operates in practice, and following substantial reviews of these undergraduate courses, it has been agreed to create separate Preliminary Examinations in Chemistry and Physics. Consequential changes are made to the Preliminary Examination in certain other Physical Sciences, which will continue for the time being to cover Earth Sciences and Materials Science.

Associated changes in regulations are set out in `Examinations and Boards' below.

Text of Decree (7)

1 In Examination Decrees, 2001, p. 67, after l. 41 insert:

`Preliminary Examination in Chemistry

1. The subjects of the Preliminary Examination in Chemistry shall be Chemistry (comprising Inorganic, Organic, and Physical Chemistry) and Mathematics for Chemistry.

2. The number of papers and other general requirements of the Preliminary Examination in Chemistry shall be prescribed by regulation from time to time by the Mathematical and Physical Sciences Board.'

2 Ibid., delete from p. 98, l. 26 to p. 99, l. 7 and substitute:

`Preliminary Examination in certain Physical Sciences

Earth Sciences

Materials Science

1. The subjects in each Preliminary Examination, the syllabus, and the number of papers shall be as prescribed by regulation from time to time by the Mathematical and Physical Sciences Board.

2. Candidates in the Preliminary Examination in Earth Sciences and Materials Science shall offer four subjects at one examination, except that a candidate who has failed in one or two subjects may offer that number of subjects at a subsequent examination.

3. Candidates shall be deemed to have passed the examination if they have satisfied the Moderators in four different subjects, either at a single examination, or at two examinations in accordance with clause 2 above and subject to the further condition that the same number of subjects as were failed at the first sitting shall have been passed at the same attempt at a subsequent examination.

4. (1) In the case of candidates who offer all four subjects, the Moderators shall publish the names only of those who have satisfied them in two or more subjects.

(2) Candidates whose names do not appear on the Pass List shall offer four subjects at a subsequent examination.

(3) In the case of candidates who, in accordance with clause 2 above, offer one or two subjects, the Moderators shall publish the names only of those who have satisfied them in each of the subjects offered.

5. The Moderators may award a distinction to candidates of special merit who have satisfied them in all four subjects at a single examination.'

3 Ibid., p. 109, after l. 7 insert:

`Preliminary Examination in Physics

1. The subject of the Preliminary Examination in Physics shall be Physics, including basic practical and mathematical techniques.

2. The number of papers and other general requirements of the Preliminary Examination in Physics shall be as prescribed by regulation from time to time by the Mathematical and Physical Sciences Board.'
