(b) Such committee shall inquire into the merits of each claim and shall submit the signed determination of each member as to whether or not there has been a manifest error or mistake together with such correction or remedy, if any, as may be recommended.
(c) Except as hereafter provided, such claim of manifest error or mistake must be made in writing by the candidate within one month from the date of notice to the candidate of the results of such examination, tests, subjects or parts thereof.

(f) Any correction of manifest error or mistake shall be without prejudice to the status of any person previously appointed from the eligible list resulting from such examination. However, if, as a result of any correction of manifest error or mistake, an eligible on a list or any person appointed from such list is found to have failed the examination, any such eligibility or appointment shall be cancelled and revoked forthwith, and notice of such action shall be sent to the eligible or appointee.
