(e) The course shall be the same as that for the corresponding subjects for the B Sc. Honours Examination, with the addition of the elements of the Kinetic theory of gases, bat candidates shall be required to show a more extended knowledge of the methods and principles of the above branches of Physical Science.

So far as the Mathematics of the B.Sc. Pass Standard are applicable, a knowledge of the mathematical treatment of the subjects will be expected, but only when such treatment is necessary for the proper elucidation of the principles involved, candidates must, however, show expertness in the solu. tion of pumerical examples arising from the application of Physical principles to practical problems.

The practical examination shall be confined to the standard exercises, which constitute the ordinary laboratory course in the above subjects, snch as, for instance, are given in Glazebrook and Shaw's text-book on Practical Physics.

(f) The course shall be the same as that for the corresponding subjects for the B.Sc. Honours Examination, but candidates shall be required to show a more extended knowledge of the Methods and Principles of the above branches of Physical Science, especially with regard to Physical Optics and the theory of Wave Motion.

The remarks made under heading (e) with regard to mathematical treat. ment apply also bere.

The Practical Examination shall be confined to the standard exercises, which constitute the ordinary laboratory course in the above subjects, such as, for instance, are given in Glazebrook and Shaw's text-book on Practical Physics.

(9) Two "General" papers will be set to the standard of Kirkaldy and Pollard's translation of Boas' Text-book of Zoology.

One of the Papers will be on the general principles of Zoology, Phylogeny and Classificntion, Evolution, and distribntion in space and time; the other will be on Animal Morphology, with a certnin amonnt of Physiology and elementary Embryology.

The Practical" paper will be set to the standard of Parker's Zootomy. The “ Practical” questions should assume that the following objects and "types" bave been examined or dissected :

Skeleton of a (large) Mammal.

Ditto ditto Bird.

Ditto ditto Crocodile.
Frog (Systematic dissection).
Fish ditto ditto ).
Prawn and Crab (Systematic dissection of Prawn). Comparison of Crab

with Prawn as regards modification of appendages.
Earthworm (dissection).
Freshwater Mnssel (dissection).
Land-snail (dissection).
Freshwater Polyp (Microscope).
Bell- Animalcule ( ditto ).
Ameba.

(h) A knowledge of the Morphology of the flowering plants being assumed as already acquired, this course will embrace the morphology of the flowerless plants. Special attention would be given to the Anatomy and Physiology of both the flowering and flowerless plants. Systematic botany should occupy about one-third of the time devoted to the Course. Systematic studies should embrace the history of Botany briefly; the various Systems of Classification ; the distribution and evolution of types in time and space; the great alliances (or cohorts) of Natural Orders ; the more striking gronds of Economic plants; and, lastly, a detailed study of the diagnostic characters of selection of some 20 Natural Orders of flowering plants.

Candidates will be expected to show a more extended study of Cryptogitmic Botany; a practical knowledge of the use of the Microscope ; a detailed acquaintance with the distinctive ieatures of 50 Natural orders, including the Vascular Cryptogams; and, lastly, an acquaintance with the cominoner genera of five of the selected Natural Orders.

Books indicating the limits of the several subjects will be recommended from time to time by the several Boards of Studies.

6. An examination in the subsidiary subjects referred to in paragraph 3 will be held annually in Calcutta at such time as the Syndicate shall determine, the date to be approximately notified in the Calendar for the year. A fee of thirty rupees shall be payable by each candidate. No candidate shall be admitted to the examination muless be shall have paid this fee to the Registrar. A candidate who fails to pass or to present himself for examination sball not be entitled to claim a refund of the fee. A candidate who fails to pass may be admitted to one or more subsequent examinations on payment of a like fee of thirty rupees on each occasion. Each successful candidate shall receive a certificate setting forth the subject in which he was examined.

7. A candidate who has passed the M.A. Examination in two of the subjects included under Mathematics and Natural and Physical Science of the M.A. Regulations, shall be exempted from passing the examination referred to in paragraph 2, elause (c).

8. Every candidate for the degree of Doctor in Science may present himself for examination in some special branch of any one of the following subjects :

(1) Mathematics.
(2) Chemistry.
(3) Physics.
(4) Botany.
(5) Zoology.
(6) Physiology.

(7) Geology and Mineralogy. 9. Application for permission to appear at this examination should be sent in not less than nine months before the examination, and should be accompanied by a statement of the special branch selected by the candidate. A fee of one hundred rupees shall be payable by each candidate; no application shall be received unless it is accompanied by this fee. A candidate who fails to pass or present himself for examination shall not be entitled to claim a refund of the fee.

11. The members of the Board of Examiners thus constituted shall meet at the earliest convenient date and determine whether the special branch selected by any candidate is of sufficient width to form the entire material of his written and practical examination, and, if not, they shall select some additional branches in which they consider it advisable that the candidate sliould be examined, it being distinctly understood that only such branches shall be added as are intimately connected with the subject-matter of the candidate's original selection.

12. Should the candidate satisfy the Examiners that his attainments are of a sufficiently high order, he shall be required to submit, after a further period of not less than six months, an original thesis dealing with part of the special branch selected by him, and if this receive the approval of the Examiners, he shall be entitled to receive the degree of Doctor in Science.
