COUNCIL OF THE UNIVERSITY

1 Dates of Extended Terms 2002--4: Honour School of Natural Science (Chemistry, Part II)

Amendment

The dates of extended terms for 2002--4, including those for Part II candidates in Chemistry, were published in the Gazette of 17 January 2002 (Vol. 132, p. 638). Since then the Mathematical and Physical Sciences Board has changed the relevant regulations in order to postpone the start of the extended Michaelmas Term for those candidates from the fifth to the third Thursday before Full Term (p. 1009). The amended dates for 2002--4 are set out below (only the dates for the start of the extended Michaelmas Term have been changed).

The same amendments are required in the lists of dates published at Examination Regulations, 2002, p. 1, and Oxford University Calendar, 2002--3, p. iv.
