and one-half of the aggregate number, - Further in Branch II obtain one-third of the total marks assigned to each Branch,

154. To qualify for the degree, of B. C. E., candidates must

Working drawings of the component parts of Machines.

[graphic]

the marks allotted to Hydraulics shall be 100, of which num. ber one-third must be secured to entitle a candidate to pass.

155. The passed candidates shall be arranged in three classes :

The first, consisting of those who have obtained not less than nine-twelfths of the aggregate number of marks.

The second, of those who have obtained not less than seven. twelfths of the aggregate number of marks.

The third, of those who have obtained not less than the mini. mum qualifying for a degree.

The names of the candidates placed in the first class shall be ranked in order of merit as determined by the total marks obtained by each: but the Examiners shall be at liberty to bracket men when the difference between them amounts only to a very small number of marks,

156. The Examiners shall be appointed not less than three months before the time fixed for the examination, in order that they may hare ample time for exercising care and deliberation in the preparation of their papers.

157. Previous to the transmission of the examination papers to the Registrar the Examiners shall hold a meeting, at which each Examiner shall submit his papers to his colleagues for remarks and suggestions, the adoption of which, however, shall be left to his own discretion.

158. Within one month from the completion of the examination the Examiners shall furnish to the Registrar a tabular statement prepared in the annexed form exhibiting the results of the examination, together with a letter containing any remarks or suggestions which they may consider to be deserving of the attention of the Senate, with reference to the results of the examination, or to the Regulations of the University as bearing upon the Faculty of Civil Engineering, and bringing to notice any striking defects that may have characterized the answers of the students generally, or of particular students.
