Ruling by the President alone
The President of the Examinations Appeal Board may issue an immediate ruling if he is of the opinion that:
- The appeal cannot be accepted because it does not meet the required criteria.
- The appeal is clearly ungrounded.
- The parties do not wish to be heard.
- The appeal can be granted without further investigation or adjudication.
A ruling issued by the President alone can itself be appealed within fourteen days, whereupon the case will be heard by the full Board.
In matters of urgency, the President of the Board may issue a provisional ruling, which is subject to subsequent confirmation and may be reversed.
