It may happen that, in the information that you receive on the interim examinations or that you read on the website concerning registration for exams, different terms are used for the same things or arrangements referred to in the EERs or the Rules and Regulations of the Examination Board. However, this does not alter the spirit of the EERs or the Rules and Regulations.
