This was changed as a result of a Report of the Studies Syndicate in 1854, so that LLBs, like BAs became full bachelors in the following year. The report is printed in Coopers Annals, vol. v. pp. 166-67. From that year also it was possible for those who had achieved honours in any of the Triposes to sit the examination for the LLB in the following year. See also LLM.
