several Problems of Euclid. The Standard of Qualification in this subject is 100 marks, which must be gained out of a maximum of 300 nominally assigned to it. But the marks so gained will not count towards the general aggregate.

III. No Candidate will be allowed to be examined in more than five subjects, of which one must be Mathematics, and no one who does not obtain at least 700 marks in Section I. of Pure Mathematics, will be eligible for an appointment.*

From the other subjects of examination each Candidate may select any, not exceeding four in number, in which he desires to be examined; the rules for counting marks are as follows:

In all subjects carrying marks, except Mathematics, onesixth of the marks allotted to each must be gained before they can be allowed to count.

In Classics, the subject is divided into two sections as above, either or both of which the Candidate may

take one subject; but he will not be allowed to count the marks gained in either Section unless they amount to one-sixth of the number allotted to it.

In either French, German, or Hindustani, every Candidate will be required to obtain one-sixth of the maximum of marks for qualification, whether he takes them up as subjects in which he desires to compete or not.

It should be understood, that though only a small qualifying test has been imposed in respect to Modern Languages, a knowledge of them on 'admission will contribute greatly to a Candidate's future success at the Royal Military Academy.

IV. The Candidates are allowed to answer as many quescions as the time allotted to the subject will permit.

وه

V. No Candidate will be admitted unless he obtain an aggregate of at least 2,500 marks.

* On this occasion the rule came into operation that no Candidate will be allowed to count any marks in the Voluntary Portions of the Mathematics (viz., “Section II.” and “ Mixed Mathematics ”) unless he shall have obtained 250 marks ; or one-sixth of the aggregate maximum assigned to those branches of the subject.
