In accordance with MQA requirement, starting January 2015, two (2) external examiners and one (1) internal examiner will be appointed for final viva. Therefore supervisors need to nominate four (4) external examiners when submitting notice for their students at the faculty’s JKPS meeting starting January 2015 (schedule on first week of January 2015). As for internal examiners, it will still be the same ie. 3 names to be submitted.
As for their attendance, the first examiner must attend the viva but second examiner need not attend except if he/she awards the student with C (resubmit/1 year correction) ,D (awareded a lower degree) or E (Fail/not awarded any degree).
But for students who are UTM staffs, all three examiners must be present.
