Mode of obtaining Credit for the various Terms.

As stated in § 5, Terms may be kept either by Examination or by Lectures.


Keeping of Arts Terms by Examination.a

A Student presenting himself for Examination is required by the Senior Lecturer to answer satisfactorily in each separate subject, or group of allied subjects, for which he is liable. A slight deficiency in one subject may, however, be counterbalanced by marked proficiency in others, provided the previous record of the Student does not indicate persistent neglect of the deficient subject. Special attention is paid to the mark in English Composition.

The name of a Student presenting himself at an Examination must be on the College books before the day of that Examination. The October Final Freshman Examination lasts three days; all the other Term Examinations, including the Degree, last for two days. On the first day papers are set; on the second day the candidates are examined viva voce. The hours of the Term Examinations are, in the forenoon, from half-past nine to twelve, and in the afternoon, from two to four or five, except during the months of December and January; in which the afternoon hours are from one to three or four; on the viva voce days, however, the hour of termination of the Examination depends on the number of candidates; and a Student must remain in the Examination Hall until all his viva voce Examinations are completed.

Students must wear academicals at all Arts Examinations other than Entrance and Sizarship.

Students residing habitually at a distance from Dublin, and coming to Dublin to attend the Examinations of their Class, may put their names on Commons on the days on which these Examinations are held. They should communicate with the Clerk of the Buttery (Registrar's Office) at or shortly after 12 o'clock on the day of the Examination.

A programme, giving the hours at which the different papers are set, is posted on the notice board at the Front Gate, a day or two before the Examination.


Keeping of Arts Terms by Lectures.a

Students in order to obtain credit for a Term by attendance at Tutorial Lectures are required to attend five-sixths of the number of Lectures appointed for the Term; but the Senior Lecturer may on the recommendation of their Lecturer, and without

reference to the Board, grant terms to Students who shall have attended not less than three-fourths of the whole.

When attendance on two different branches of one subject is required (e.g., French and Latin), the Student must attend at least five-sixths of the total number of Lectures, and must attend at least three-fourths of the number given by each Lecturer severally.

Students seeking credit for a Term by Lectures must, at the commencement of such Term, register with the Clerk of the Books their places of residence for that Term, and during Term notify any change of residence. If this rule be not observed, credit for the Term cannot be allowed.

Students keeping the Term by Lectures can ascertain the hours at which they are to attend, as well as the names of their Lecturers, from the notices posted at their Tutors' Rooms.

Students may obtain credit for their Terms in Modern Languages, by attending any official Term of Lectures in the subject, irrespective of Class. (Resolution of the Board, July 8, 1905.)

Terms may also be kept by attendance on Lectures in the Indian and Home Civil Service School, which see.

No Lectures are given on Church Holidays marked in capital letters, or upon days marked thus (†) in the Almanac.

Honor Lectures.-A Student keeping the Term may substitute one or more of the Honor Courses of Lectures for the corresponding Course or Courses of ordinary Lectures. For information regarding these Lectures see "Honor Lectures and Examinations.'

A Student who in any Term obtains Honors in all the Subjects for which he would be liable, is entitled to claim credit for that Term, except in the case of the Final Freshman and Degree Examinations. Á Student who obtains a Moderatorship is not required to compete at the ordinary Degree Examination.

Freshman Students who have passed a Test Examination, may obtain credit for a Term prior to the Final Freshman Examination, by attending one Course of Honor Lectures, or by getting an Honor in any subject. (See § 21.)

The Lectures, both Ordinary and Honor, are, as a rule, chiefly devoted to the new business of the Term.

The Catechetical Examinations are on the day following the Term Examinations, but candidates from a distance are examined on the last day of the Term Examinations.

Catechetical Terms may be kept by Lectures, which commence at 9.30 a.m. in the Examination Hall on the days appointed in the Almanac, and are continued at the same hour on the succeeding Saturdays.

18. The Languages required during the Freshman years, in addition to Latin, are one of the following:-Greek, French, German.

The Examinations in French and German are partly viva voce in the prescribed books; and partly by papers containing passages (unprescribed) for translation from these languages, and passages for translation from English into the same.

Latin Composition forms a part of every Latin Examina tion. In the translation of selected passages from the Classical authors, separate weight will be allowed for the style of the English Composition.

The books named under English Composition are intended to supply subjects for English Composition. A few questions will also be set on the substance of the books.

The letters p. or v. v., or p. & v. v., added in parentheses after a subject in the following Course, denote that the Examination in that subject is customarily conducted by papers, or vivâ roce, or in both ways.


Junior Freshman Year.

Throughout the Junior Freshman year, a Student keeping a Term by Examination must answer in all the prescribed subjects. Students keeping a Term by Lectures must attend two Courses of Lectures, one Course in Science and one in Languages. But Junior Class Engineering Students may substitute the Mathematical Lectures of the School for the ordinary Science Lectures, and see § 21 for privileges granted to Students who have passed a Test Examination, and § 22 for the Arts Course of Medical Students.

Subjects for Michaelmas Lectures and Hilary Examination.

Geometry: as in the Course for Entrance
with additional practical construc-
tions; and the Course comprised in
Euclid, Book vi., but proofs which
apply only to commensurable quanti-
ties will also be accepted, so that ratios
may be dealt with by the ordinary
processes of arithmetic.
Students, however, should be able to
recognise why such proofs are not
immediately applicable to incommen-
surables (p. & v. v.).

A more detailed syllabus can be obtained
on application.

Arithmetic. Algebra, the first Four
Rules, Fractions, Surds, Simple and
Quadratic Equations (p.).

Subjects for Michaelmas Lectures and Hilary Examination-continued.
