`SPECIAL REGULATIONS FOR THE HONOUR SCHOOL OF PHYSIOLOGICAL SCIENCES

A

1. The subject of the Honour School of Physiological Sciences shall be all aspects of the scientific study of the development and functioning of living organisms with particular but not exclusive reference to mammals. 2. No candidate shall be admitted for examination in this school unless he or she has either passed or been exempted from the First Public examination.

3. The examination in this school shall be under the supervision of the Medical Sciences Board, which shall prescribe the necessary regulations.

4. The examiners shall be the Public Examiners for the Final Honour School of Medical Sciences.

5. Any candidate offering an optional subject based on courses provided within the Honour School of Experimental Psychology shall be examined in that subject by the Public Examiners in Experimental Psychology.

6. Candidates may offer themselves for examination in one or more of the Supplementary Subjects specified for the Honour School of Natural Sciences. A candidate's results in any such subject shall be published, and account shall be taken of those results in the production of the class list for the Honour School of Physiological Sciences according to the regulations of the Honour School of Natural Sciences.

7. Every candidate shall give notice to the Registrar of all papers being offered not later than Friday in the eighth week of Michaelmas Term in the academic year in which the candidate intends to sit the examination.

B

1. The options of the school shall be as specified for the Honour School of Medical Sciences. This list may be varied from time to time by the Medical Sciences Board, and such variations shall be notified by publication in the University Gazette by the end of Week 8 of Trinity Term of the academic year two years preceding the first examination of the changed options. Each option shall be divided into themes that will be taught starting in Michaelmas Term. The list of themes to be taught in each option in any one academic year shall be published no later than Week 0 of Michaelmas Term of that academic year. Most themes will be specific each to a single option, but some may be shared. The total number of themes to be examined in each option shall be at least 8 and no more than 11, taking account of shared and changed themes (see para. 2 below). Each candidate will be expected to have studied 8 themes in order to address the synoptic questions of Paper 2, and to have prepared sufficient of those themes in depth to be able to address the requirements of Paper 1 (see paras 2, 3, and 5 of Part B of the Special Regulations for the Honour School of Medical Sciences).

2. The written papers of the school shall be as specified for the Honour School of Medical Sciences. To account for any minor change from year to year to the themes within any option, the question papers for the Final Honour School of Physiological Sciences shall be set so as to address the themes included in the options both in the academic year of the examination and in the preceding academic year.

3. Each candidate must offer four written papers:

Paper 1 for two chosen options, Paper 2 and Paper 3.

In place of one Paper 1, candidates may offer a written paper based on courses provided within Parts I and II of the Final Honour School of Experimental Psychology. The subjects of the papers to be available for this purpose shall be published no later than the end of Week 5 of Hilary Term in the year preceding the examination.

In addition, each candidate must both:

(i) undertake and be examined in a research project on the subject of which a dissertation must be submitted, and

(ii) submit an essay.

The weighting of marks for the six exercises required of each candidate shall be 25 per cent for the research project and 15 per cent for each of the other five exercises. If, in any part of the examination, a candidate presents essentially the same information on more than one occasion, then credit will be given in only the first instance. This regulation elaborates the specific regulations relating to the submitted essay and answers in Papers 1 (see para. 5.i) and to the dissertation (see para. 4.iv).

4. Research project

(i) Form and subject of the project The project shall consist in original experiments done by the candidate alone or in collaboration with others (where such collaboration is, for instance, needed to produce results in the time available).

The subject of the project shall be approved and the work shall be supervised as specified for the Honour School of Medical Sciences (see para. 4.i of Part B of the Special Regulations for the Honour School of Medical Sciences). For students reading for the Honour School of Physiological Sciences, a list of potential supervisors and their interests shall be published in Week 3 of Hilary Term of the academic year preceding the intended year of examination. Candidates should normally arrange their own projects and seek approval to start work through the Director of Preclinical Studies or his or her deputy. Otherwise, candidates may make use of the list of approved projects published according to the Special Regulations for the Honour School of Medical Sciences in Trinity Term of the academic year preceding the year of the examination. When choosing a research project, candidates must bear in mind the prohibition on duplicating material in different parts of the examination (see para. 4.iv).

(ii) Registration Candidates must register the title of their projects through the Preclinical Studies Office no later than noon on Friday of Week 8 of Michaelmas Term in the academic year in which they intend taking the examination.

(iii) Examination Candidates shall submit to the examiners a dissertation based on their project according to guidelines that will be published by the Medical Sciences Board in Week 1 of Trinity Term in the academic year preceding the examination. The length of the dissertation excluding tables, figures, diagrams, and references shall not exceed 10,000 words.

In addition each candidate shall make a brief oral presentation of their project to a group of three examiners (or examiners and assessors appointed to ensure an adequate representation of expertise), after which, the candidate shall be examined viva voce on the project. The form of the presentation to the examiners shall be specified in guidelines published by the Medical Sciences Board in Week 1 of Trinity Term in the academic year preceding the examination.

(iv) Submission and assessment of project-based written work Dissertations (two copies in either case) must be sent to the Chairman of Examiners, Honour School of Physiological Sciences, c/o the Clerk of the Schools, Examination Schools, High Street, Oxford, not later than noon on the Friday of Week 8 in Hilary Term of the academic year in which the candidate intends to take the examination. The copies shall be accompanied (in a separate sealed envelope) by a certificate signed by each candidate indicating that the research project is the candidate's own work and that the supervisor commented on no more than the first draft of the dissertation. In the case of laboratory-based work that has been produced in collaboration, the certificate shall indicate the extent of the candidate's own contribution.

In all cases, the examiners shall obtain and consider a written report from each supervisor indicating the extent of the input made by the candidate to the outcome of the project and also any unforeseen difficulties associated with the project (e.g. unexpected technical issues or problems in the availability of materials, equipment, or literature or other published data). Material in a candidate's dissertation must not duplicate material that has been included in the submitted essay and nor may it be duplicated in any answer given in a written examination paper.

Dissertations previously submitted for the Honour School of Physiological Sciences may be resubmitted. No dissertation will be accepted if it has already been submitted, wholly or substantially, for another Honour School or degree of this University, or for a degree of any other institution.

5. The submitted essay

(i)Form and subject of the essay The submitted essay shall be of not more than 3,000 words, excluding any tables, figures, diagrams, or references. It must be typed and bound according to guidelines that will be published by the Medical Sciences Board in Week 0 Michaelmas Term in the academic year preceding the intended year of examination.

The subject matter of a candidate's essay shall be within the scope of the school. The essay may relate to any of the themes taught in the options of the school, regardless of the candidate's chosen options for Paper 1. However, in their Papers 1, candidates shall be excluded from answering any question set on a theme registered as subject matter for their submitted essay. Likewise, the dissertation on the research project may not duplicate material in the submitted essay.

A list of suggested essay titles, and the themes to which they relate, approved by the Chairman of Examiners in consultation with the option organisers, shall be published no later than the end of Week 0 of Michaelmas Term in the academic year preceding the intended year of examination. A candidate wishing to offer an essay with a title not on the approved list, must apply for approval of their proposed title at any time, but not later than the end of Week 0 of Hilary Term in the academic year of the examination. Application shall be made via the Preclinical Studies Office and shall include the proposed title, a brief outline of the subject matter, and the main themes to which it relates. Decision on the application shall be made by the Chairman of Examiners in consultation with the option organisers and shall be communicated to the candidate as soon as possible and in any case not later than Week 4 of Hilary Term in the academic year of the examination.

(ii) Registration No later than the end of Week 8 of Hilary Term in the academic year of the examination, every candidate must register through the Preclinical Studies Office the title of their essay and confirm the main themes to which it relates.

(iii) Authorship The essay must be the candidate's own work. Candidates' tutors, or their deputies nominated to act as advisors, may discuss with candidates the proposed field of study, the sources available, and the method of treatment, but on no account may they read or comment on any written draft. Every candidate shall sign a certificate to the effect that this rule has been observed and that the essay is their own work; and the candidate's tutor or advisor shall countersign the certificate confirming that, to the best of their knowledge and belief, this is so.

(iv) Submission Essays (two copies) must be submitted to the Chairman of Examiners in Physiological Sciences, c/o the Clerk of the Schools, Examination Schools, High Street, Oxford, not later than noon on the Friday of Week 0 of the Trinity Term in the year of the examination. Each essay shall be accompanied (in a separate sealed envelope addressed to the Chairman of Examiners) by certification of authorship as specified in the preceding paragraph and an electronic copy of the text of the essay.

6. Candidates may be examined viva voce; the topics may include the subject of any written paper taken by the candidate, or the research project or submitted essay.'
