REPORT OF COMMITTEE RE SUHMER SESSION AND WINTER SESSION
1.  Summer Session regulations should be part of the
Calendar, and should thus come before Faculty and

a separate pamphlet as well.
^ 2.  The procedure in receiving examination marks
" " should follow the lines of the corresponding pro
cedure in the case of Winter Session Examinations,
I.e. the Head of the Department concerned (or an
authorized deputy) should si;*n the mark-sheet;
and a committee on examination results should
consider the marks and report to the Faculty of
Arts and Scienoe their effect on the standing of
the students concerned.
, 3.  Rules in the Calendar as to the admission of
students, and rules as to classification and
advancement should apply as far as possible to
Summer Session students.
^ 4.  Winter Session students with Summer Session
^ credits should be registered as full under
graduates in the year in which they are taking
their work.  if they are taking work in more
than one year they should normally be registered
as full undergraduates In the lower year; but if
not more than three units are required to complete that year then they should be registered
as conditioned undergraduates in the higher year.
1 5.  Summer Session students should be registered as
follows:-
(a) Students whose Full Junior Matriculation
v standing has not been approved shall
register as PARTIAL STUDENTS.  (See Paragraph 7, Page 42 of Calendar).

whose Full Junior Matriculation standing has
been approved shall register as FIRST YEAR
' students until they have completed the 15
units of work prescribed by the Calendar.

6. Scholarships and Prizes should be open to Winter
Session students only, unless otherwise stated.

not be taken into account in awarding scholarships
and prizes; but a full undergraduate should not be
barred from a competition merely because his
previous credits have been obtained wholly or in
part in Summer Sessions.
8. That the 65$ rule be abolished in reference to
Winter Session work and be not applied to Summer
Session work: a student who has made 50$ in any
subject in either Winter or Summer Session will
not be required to repeat that subject.
9. (a) That students taking a complete First or
Second year be granted a pass on making an
average of 50$ on the total, with a minimum

Summer Session or in supplementals, be
required to make 50$ on each paper.
10. If a subject is divided into parts, the Department
may require 50$ in any part.  No credit will be
granted for any part until the whole course has
been completed.  Part courses in different subjects
may not be combined.
11. It has been attempted to make 1&  unit courses in
the Summer Session correspond to the work of a
term of the Winter Session.  But if a student
desires to combine a l£ unit course in the Summer
Session with the complementary Winter term's work
he must secure the recommendation of the Department
concerned and the consent of the Faculty.
12. A student obtaining less than 30 per cent in a
subject will not be granted a supplemental examination in that subject, except with the consent of
