'For students admitted in January 2008 only the schedule for course assessments will be as follows:

Year 1:

(a) Each candidate must submit a literature review of no more than 4000 words on a topic selected by the candidate and approved by the organising committee. The review must be submitted by the end of May in Year 1 on a date to be specified in the course handbook. Candidates whose work does not meet the required standard may submit it again on one further occasion.

(b) Each candidate must pass a written examination taking place at the beginning of July, in Year 1. Candidates who fail an examination once will be permitted to take it again on one further occasion.

(c) Each candidate must submit a mock grant application on a topic selected by the candidate and approved by the organising committee. The mock grant application must be submitted by the end of December in Year 1 on a date to be specified in the course handbook. Candidates whose work does not meet the required standard may submit it again on one further occasion.

Year 2:

(a) Each candidate must pass two written examinations; the first will take place at the beginning of March, and the second at the beginning of November in Year 2. Candidates who fail an examination once will be permitted to take it again on one further occasion.

(b) Each candidate must submit a dissertation of no more than 10,000 words on a topic selected by the candidate and approved by the organising committee. The dissertation must be submitted by the end of October on a date to be specified in the course handbook. Candidates whose work does not meet the required standard may submit it again on one further occasion. In addition, each candidate will be assessed on their presentation skills by means of a public oral presentation on his or her research topic on a date to be specified in the course handbook.

(c) Each candidate will be examined via a multi-station examination at the end of the course. Candidates who fail an examination once will be permitted to take it again on one further occasion.

The required written submissions must be sent to the Chairman of the Examiners, M.Sc in Rheumatology, c/o Head of Examinations and Assessments, Examination Schools, High Street, Oxford. Each submission must be accompanied by a certificate indicating that it is the candidate's own work.

Candidates may be examined viva voce on their dissertation and on any other part of the assessment. The viva voce examination will normally be conducted in November of Year 2 on dates to be determined by the examiners.

Candidates must achieve a pass in each assessment component in order to pass the examination overall. Candidates who fail a component will have one further opportunity to enter for that assessment. Candidates must pass at the second attempt in order to continue on the course.

The examiners may award a distinction for excellence in part of or in the whole examination.

The examiners shall retain one copy of each dissertation of each successful candidate for deposit in the Radcliffe Science Library.'
