"Evidence is wanted from students who are having difficulties in their degrees because of language requirements," said Education Officer Caroline McGrath.

"Signed statements including successes at school, course at University, successes in other units, us well as the trouble experienced in passing a reading knowledge are wanted."

"Several have been handed in already. The statements will be used us evidence in preparing a case for the abolition of language requirements at Victoria."

"A case was made by the education sub-committee last year but was turned down by the council without explanation."

"The language departments want large classes for their own importance and the others arn't prepared to rock the boat."

"If sufficient evidence comes in a petition may be circulated to request action on this matter from the Council."

"Students with evidence about language requirement are asked to hand them into the office or to contact the education officer for further information."
