How can I be granted an Oral Examination?

The Board of Examiners may recommend to the Department that a student who has failed the last one or two courses required to complete the degree be offered an Oral Examination in that one or those two courses provided that he/she has obtained in each instance a mark of at least 35% for the course(s). 
The Oral examination will concern the courses as a whole, and not be restricted to the questions set in the examination, which the student did. The first examiner and at least one other Examiner must be present at an Oral Examination.
If the examination is passed, the student cannot be awarded a mark higher than 40 a marginal pass for the course. If he/she fails the Oral, the student will not have any right of appeal or review
