Special procedures

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.

Provisional ruling
In matters of urgency, the President of the Board may issue a provisional ruling, which is subject to subsequent confirmation and may be reversed.
