The Board of Studies desires to point out that the Statute renders a knowledge of all St. Paul's Epistles obligatory, as also of the four Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles in the Original Greek; and that the Rudimenta Religionis'involve a general knowledge of the contents of the Bible and of the XXXIX Articles. The specification of a book or books for especial study is not intended to limit the examination to that book or books; and the Board is desirous to urge on all who are reading for the School the importance of an accurate study of Holy Scripture.

Except in the case of those who seek the higher Honours, the Examiners will be willing to examine Candidates who offer Biblia Sacra, Pearson on the Creed, Butler's Analogy, The Book of Common Prayer, and Hooker, Book V; but it is recommended that to this list be added the proposed portion of Eusebius.

Books marked with an asterisk may be considered as practically permanent.

of Arts, or to the status of Student of Civil Law. (2) The Board of Studies may require them either (a) to

have obtained Honours in the School of Jurisprudence; or (B) if they are disqualified by standing from obtaining such Honours, to offer themselves for examination in that School in the usual way, and to satisfy

the Examiners that their work is such as to entitle them, but for such disqualification, to a place in the Class-list; or (W) to take in such additional books or subjects recognized in the Honour School of Juris

prudence as they may prescribe. [This regulation, although made by the Statute, is not at

present in actual operation.] (3) They must give in their names to the Superior Bedel of

The following are the existing regulations of the Board of Studies :I. Jurisprudence, General or Comparative. Candidates will be examined either in

Some department of a Foreign Code, to be compared and contrasted

But no candidate can obtain a place in this Class-list who has exceeded the twenty-fourth Term from his matriculation. Every candidate whose name has been placed in any of the three Classes, or who, being disqualified by standing, has in the judgment of the Examiners shown sufficient merit to entitle him, but for such disqualification, to a place in the Classlist, receives, on application to the Clerk of the Schools, a certificate of having passed.
