"Shall" with 3-rd person (sing. & pl.)

Postby SARDORBEK » Sat Dec 24, 2011 6:19 am

Hello,DEAR ALAN!

If an applicant for scholarship has a long-term residence in the CR at the time of application,
he/she shall submit the necessary documents through the Department of Development
Co-operation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by 31 December of the previous year.

Applicants shall submit the following documentation, in two copies.

Why is "shall" used with 3-rd person singular and plural?
In which cases "shall" is used?
Could YOU explain thoroughly,please?
Thanks a lot!..

'Shall' here is simply an official way of giving instructions/expressing (typically legal) requirements.
