Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 2. 1965.
The following changes will be made in the names of units prescribed for the degree of Bachelor of Science:
|Current name||New name|
|Applied Chemistry||Instrumental Techniques (Chemistry)|
|Radiophysics III||Electronic & Radio Physics III|
|Statistical Mathematics II||Statistical & Numerical Mathematics II|
In addition, the course in biology will be raised to the status of a Stage I course, and a new unit, Statistical and Numerical Mathematics III is to be prescribed.
The list of subjects for the degree of Bachelor of Science with Honours is to be extended to include Mathematics and Zoology.
The Committee also approved other amendments which affect both the BSc (Hons) degree and the MSc degree.
As from January 1 1964, Second Class Honours may be awarded in two Divisions.
A candidate may be permitted to substitute relevant and complementary papers from a subject in which he has passed at Stage III for an equal number of papers in the subject in which he is taking his degree.
The course regulations for the degree of Master of Science were amended to delete Mathematics from the list of subjects in view of its pending addition to the subjects available for BSc (Hons). This is a temporary measure. The University proposes to reinstate Mathematics for the Master's degree in 1966.
