  • Moral Tutors will inform students at the end of each term of the Collections they will be sitting on returning from the vacation, and for ensuring that Collections are set, marked, returned, and recorded on OxCORT, normally by the end of the second week of term, and certainly no later than the end of fourth week of each term.
  • Collections will take place in 0th Week, at 14.15 to 17.15 on Thursday and at 09.15 to 12.15 on Friday morning, and 14.15 to 17.15 on Friday afternoon, in the Hall or another designated examination room.
  • Students will be emailed with a list of those sitting Collections at the start of 0th Week each term and a final list will be placed on the Front Quad Notice Board on Wednesday of 0th Week.

  • Gowns will be worn in Hall or another designated examination room.
  • Authorised members of the College will invigilate the Collections. Invigilators will periodically patrol the examination room.
