ADMIssIoN (Sections 1 and 17)
Before being admitted to the Degree Course in Medicine, students must have matriculated and passed the Preliminary Examination in Chemistry, Physics, and Biology, in accordance with the provisions of Regulation XXVIII. Provision is also made for the admission of graduates in other Faculties and students who have completed the first and second years of the course for the Degree of Bachelor of Science in this University.
Limitations of accommodation and teaching facilities, however, may cause the University to limit the admission of students to the Degree Course in any year.
Students will be required to submit to any selective process for admission found necessary.
Further details concerning admission are given on page 23.
ATTENDANCE AT LECTURES, DEMONSTRATIONS AND PRACTICAL Wоaк (Sections 2 and 4)
Attendances at lectures, demonstrations, practical work and clinical instruction are compulsory and, in addition; competent performance in carrying out the duties and work prescribed in all subjects is required. Failure to comply with these requirements may lead to disqualification from presenting at examinations. Students so disqualified will usually be notified in writing by the Faculty of Medicine, but the Faculty is not bound to give such notification. ,
Students prevented by illness or other serious cause from satisfying attendance requirements should report their absences to the Secretary, Medical Branch, Registrar's Office, so that dispensation may be granted by the Faculty, if necessary.
On commencing Division II students should purchase a Certificate Book at the Accounts Branch of the Registrar's Office. It is a student's responsibility to have the details of all certificates entered, the certificates signed by the authorized persons, and the Certificate Book submitted to the University at any time when asked for by he Registrar. No student will be permitted to present for the final M.B., B.S.
Examination unless all certificates have been signed by the authorized persons and the certificates submitted as evidence of the satisfactory completion of all details prescribed for the Degree Course.
The provisions in the details and time-table as to the number of lectures, tutorials, etc., and the hours of practical work are included for general guidance only, and may be modified by the Faculty without notice if the necessity arises.
Students are advised that they are expected to use a considerable part of the vacations for reading purposes. In some cases specific references are made in the following details ; in others a list of suitable books will be posted on the appropriate notice boards; in all cases of doubt the lecturers concerned should be consulted.
Except in subjects where special details are published, the Syllabus for Honours will be the same as for Pass, but the Examination for Honours will require the candidates to attain a higher standard and to show more detailed knowledge.
