The reports and recommendations of Examiners and their copies of dissertations must be returned to the School Office.
Examiners are asked to do so as soon as possible - and in any case within two months from the time of receipt of the dissertation. The Examiners' recommendations shall be subject to the approval of the Board of the Faculty and of the Senate and the result of the examination shall not be published until after such approval.
