Dear graduate, sod off

A learned reader reports things are not quite right with University of Newcastle testamurs. Or left actually. The learned reader’s name and award are off-centre on a newly-issued testamur, not far enough off to be somebody’s idea of design, but enough to be noticeable. Ah, thought the LR, a production error, which the university will rectify by issuing a corrected record.

No, the university replied to the LR; “the testamur design in its current form was approved by university council a few years ago which unfortunately displays the award information slightly to the left on all testamurs issued. As the design was approved by council, we do not have the authority to change the layout and reprint documents.”
