At each Final Freshman Examination those Students who obtain 40 per cent. and upwards, and whose answering in the several subjects is considered satisfactory by the Senior Lecturer, are distributed into three Classes, the names in each Class being arranged in the order of the percentages obtained. The minimum

To those who do not possess a text-book dealing with the above Course, Loney's "Mechanics and Hydrostatics" (University Press, Cambridge) is suggested.

standards of Classes are :-First Class, 60 per cent.; Second Class, 50 per cent.; Third Class, 40. Of the remaining Candidates, those whose answering is considered by the Senior Lecturer to be sufficient are allowed the Examination, and their names are arranged in alphabetical order as Unclassed Candidates.

The Jellett Prizes for General Answering, value £5 and £3 respectively, are awarded on the result of this Examination (see under "Jellett Prizes").

The award of the Senior Exhibitions depends partly on the marks obtained at this Examination (see under "Senior Exhibitions").

21. Modification of the Arts Course of the Freshman


In order to enable Students who are proved to possess a competent knowledge of Classics (with English Composition), or Mathematics, or both, to devote themselves to special studies earlier than they can at present, the following scheme has been adopted by the Board and Council.

Examination for Students desiring Privileges in the Freshman


To prove that Students possess a competent knowledge of Classics or Mathematics, or both, a Test Examination will be held in Michaelmas Term before the beginning of Lectures, and will be open to all rising Junior Freshman Students, and to all rising Senior Freshman Students.

The subjects for this Examination will be :

[ocr errors]

1. Classics, . (a) Xenophon, Hellenica, Book i.; Plato, Apologia Socratis; Horace, Odes iii., iv.; Cicero, Pro Milone.

(b) Latin Composition.

(c) An English Essay.

2. Mathematics, (a) Geometry, as in Freshman years.


Algebra (including Quadratic Equations).

Trigonometry (to the end of the solution of
Plane Triangles).

This Examination will last for two days, and will be conducted partly by papers and partly viva voce. The standard of questions and marking will be that of ordinary Term Examinations of the Junior Freshman year. In order that a Student may pass in either Classics or Mathematics, it will be necessary for him to obtain at least 40 per cent., and satisfy the Court of Examiners, in that subject.

Any Student who shall have obtained 30 per cent. in Classics or in Mathematics at the Junior Exhibition Examination, will be allowed credit for the Classical or Mathematical portion of the Test Examination.

[blocks in formation]

Privileges and Duties of those who have passed the Examination in both Branches.

§ 1. Students who have passed this Examination in both Classics and Mathematics may proceed by keeping three Terms, one of which must be by Examination in the Junior Freshman year, and one at least either by Lectures or Examination in the Senior Freshman year. These Terms may be kept (a) as at present, by attendance at the ordinary Tutorial Lectures, or by passing the ordinary Term Examinations; (b) by attendance at Honor Lectures, or by obtaining Honors. Credit for a Term of Lectures will be allowed (on the written recommendation of the Lecturers) for diligence at one Course of Honor Lectures, except at the Trinity Term Lectures of the Senior Freshman year; and credit for a Term Examination will be allowed to a Student who obtains an Honor in any subject, except in the Michaelmas Term of the Senior Freshman year.

(But attendance at Lectures in one Term, and obtaining an Honor in the following Term, will give credit for only one Term.)

NOTE.-Students who desire to obtain credit for a Term by attendance at Classical Honor Lectures will be required to attend the Tutorial Honor Lectures and the Honor Lectures in Classical Composition.

Privileges and Duties of Students who have passed the Examination in one Branch only.

§ 2. Students who have, at the Test Examination, passed in Classics, but failed in Mathematics, or vice versa, will have the privileges and duties enumerated in § 1; with this restriction, however, that, before they are allowed to present themselves with their Class for the Final Freshman Examination in October, they will be required to have obtained credit in the Ordinary Arts Course for three Terms in the subject in which they have failed at the Test Examination, one of these Terms to be kept by an Examination in that subject in the Junior Freshman year, and one at least (by Lectures or Examination) in the Senior Freshman


But such Students may present themselves as rising Senior Freshmen at the next Test Examination in the subject in which they have failed, and, if they qualify therein, obtain the privileges stated in § 1. But failure to qualify then will involve loss of a year to such Students as have not already obtained credit for a Junior Freshman Term by Examination in that subject.

Supplementing Senior Freshman Examinations.

§ 3. If a Student shall be found in the October of his Senior Freshman year to have failed to fulfil the requirements set forth above, he will not be allowed to present himself with the other members of his Class at the Final Freshman Examination in October, but may then, as at present (a) if one Term in arrear, supplement the last omitted Senior Freshman Examination, and pass the Supplemental Final Freshman Examination in the following January or April; or (b) if two Terms in arrear, supplement the Hilary Senior Freshman Examination in October, and the Trinity Senior Freshman Examination in January, and pass the Supplemental Final Freshman Examination in April.


Arts Course for Medical Students.

1. In order to join the Medical School, a Student must have passed either

(a) a Junior Freshman Term Examination,


(b) the Special Preliminary Examination held in March, the standard and subjects of which are those of the Hilary Junior Freshman Examination.

Note.-Rising Junior Freshmen desiring to enter the Medical School have the privilege of presenting themselves at the Michaelmas Junior Freshman Examination (exclusive of Trigonometry), without paying the May fee of the Junior Freshman Year. But they obtain no academic credit for this examination beyond the right of entering the Medical School.

2. All Medical Students of undergraduate standing, who claim professional privileges in Arts, must attend at least one course of Arts Lectures in the Trinity Term of each year. The subjects of these lectures are as follows:

Junior Freshman Year.

Mechanics (including Elementary Trigonometry) and English

Senior Freshman Year.

Logic (Formal) and English Composition.

Junior Sophister Year.

Astronomy and English Composition.

Senior Sophister Year.

Ethics and English Composition.

Note 1.-Students whose English Composition is unsatisfactory may be required to attend special lectures in that subject.

Note 2.-Students who enter the Medical School at the commencement of their Senior Freshman Year, and have obtained credit for only one term as Junior Freshmen, must, in the Trinity Term of the Senior Freshman Year, attend both the above Courses for Freshmen.

Note 3.-In order to obtain credit for the Lectures of the Junior Sophister Year, every Student must, in addition to attending the Lectures, pass an Examination in Astronomy at the end of the Term.

Note 4.-A Student who enters the Medical School as a Senior Sophister, and has not passed a Junior Sophister Term Examination which includes Astronomy, must attend, in the Trinity Term of the Senior Sophister Year, the Arts Courses of the two Sophister Years, as above.

In order to obtain credit for these Lectures, he must pass an Examination in Astronomy as in Note 3.

3. Students who have entered the Medical School not later than the commencement of their Senior Freshman Year, and have obtained credit for such terms of Arts Lectures as they are required under § 2 to attend in the Freshman Years, will obtain credit for the Final Freshman Examination by passing

(a) The Preliminary Scientific Examination of the Medical School. (b) An Examination in Mechanics, Logics, English Composition, and one of the following languages:-Greek, Latin, French, German.

The Examination in Mechanics may be taken either at the ordinary Final Freshman Examination, or as in § 4.

Note.-Senior Freshmen who enter the School in the Summer Session must accordingly pass the full ordinary Final Freshman Examination, or else drop a class.

4. An Examination will be held in the Mechanics of the Final Freshman Course (including Elementary Trigonometry), at the date of each of the Preliminary Scientific Examinations.

5. No student will be allowed to attend the Arts Lectures in the Trinity Term of the Junior Sophister Year until he has obtained credit for the Final Freshman Examination.

6. Students who have obtained credit for such attendance at Arts Lectures of the Sophister years as is required of them under § 2, and who have made satisfactory progress with their Medical studies during those years (see § 7), may present themselves for the Arts portion of their Degree Examination. This consists of Ethics and English Composition as in the ordinary Degree Examination.

7. The words' satisfactory progress' in § 6 are thus interpreted. Before presenting themselves for the Arts Degree

(a) Students who have entered the School not later than the commencement of their Senior Freshman Year must have passed Part II. of the Intermediate Medical Examination.
