SCIENCE receives Practical as well as Theoretical instruction in Section 1 of the Elementary Stage of Subject XXIII., he may be registered for attendances at such instruction for two years.

For the purposes of registration the first stage of Mathematics is treated as an Elementary Stage. A student may be registered for two years in that stage, and for two subsequent years in each of the Divisions I. and Il. Thus the registration may be continued for two years in Stages 2, 3, and 4, or any one of them, and for two further years in Stages 5, 6, und 7, or any one of them.

d. No student may be registered in the Advanced Stage of a subject unless he has made 20 attendances in a previous year in the Elementary Stage of the same subject, or has obtained a success at an examination in that Stage, and no student may be registered in the advanced course of a group of subjects unless he has made 50 attendances in the previous year in the elementary course of the same group of subjects unless, in either case, he gives satisfactory evidence to the Board of his ability to profit by such advanced instruction.

e. No student may be registered for an attendance grant in the Elementary Stage of any subject in which he has already obtained a first class in the Elementary Stage, or any higher success.

f. No student who has obtained a first class in the Advanced Stage or a success in Honours of a subject may be registered for attendance grant in that subject.

g. No attendances may be registered for Subject V., Stage 1, on account of Male Teachers and Male Pupil Teachers who are teaching or have taught in Public Elementary Schools under the Board.

h. No student who has been in the Elementary course of a School of Science (see SSLV. - LXXII.) or in a day school under $ LXXIII. for one year is eligible for registration for more than one further year in the Elementary Stage of the subjects which formed part of his course; and no student who has been in the Elementary course for two years is eligible for registration in the Elementary Stage of such i subjects. Corresponding restrictions apply to ! stu lents who have taken the Advanced course

in a School of Science for one or two years

A student on whom a grant has been paid in a School of Science or in a day school unler ŞLXXIII. is ineligible for registration in Section 1 of the Elementary Stage of Subject XV., General Biology, or of Subject XX V., Hygiene, or of Subject XXIII., Physiogruphy, in any case where Biology, Hygiene, or Chemistry and Physics or Physiography has formed part of the respective courses taken.

i. No student may be registered for attendances for special payments for practical work in the subject in which a claim is to be made unless the laboratory in which he is taught has been approved for that subject. The requirements for laboratories for Physics, and for Biological subjects, will be given with the Syllabuses (see Note Il. on p. 63).

j. Training College students who passed in Division 1 of Mathematics under the fate rules, can only be registered for attendance grants in Stages 5, 6, and 7, or for payments on results in Honours; those who have passed in Division 2 of Mathematics under the late rules are not eligible for any grants in that subject.

k. No student who has obtained a pass in Alternative Elementary Physics may be registered in the Elementary Stage of either Subject VIII. or Subject IX. Registration or success in either of the Elementary Stages of Subject X. will be counted as equivalent to registration or success in the other.

l. No student may be registered in Section 1 of Subject XXIII. who has obtained a success (which includes “ Fair") or is during the same session registered for attendance grants, in Subject VIa., VIb., VIII., IX., X., or XXIII.

m. No student may be registered in Section 1 of Subject XV. who has obtained a success (which includes “ Fair”) or is during the same session registered for attendance grants in Subject XIV., XV., XVI., or XVII.

n. No student may be registered for more than six years in the Elementury and Advanced Courses, nor for more than four years in either the Elementary or the Advanced Course of a specially recognized group. (See p. 7.)

Personal Examinations are held in the evenings in April and May, and in the daytime in June. candidate can be examined in the same subject at the Evening Examinations and at the Day Examinations in the same year. The students of a school must, as a rule, be all examined at the erening or all at the day examinations, It is expected that the students of day classes will sit at the day examinations, and the students of erening classes at the evening eraminations. Examinations in the Elementary Stage of Science and Art subjects can only be heldwhen special application forthem is madeon Form 119, direct to the Board by Managersof Schools or, where one has been appointed, to the Special Local Secretary, on or before the 3rd March for the Evening Examinations or 30th April for the Day Examinations. The exact number of papers required for each subject must be stated, and the form of application must be accompanied in each case by the sum of 1s. 6d. for each paper asked for therein. For papers in the Elementary Stage of Practical Chemistry or Practical Metallurgy the fee will be 2s. 6d. per paper. The number of papers requisitioned cannot be subsequently varied, and no part of the remittance is returnable. Managers of Art Schools and Classes can be supplied with casts instead of diagrams for the examination in Drawing Ornament in Outline upon the condition that they make application on Form 119f on or before 1st December for the number of casts required, and at the same time transmit to the Board 6d. for each cast applied for. The number of casts applied for cannot be subsequently varied and no part of the remittance is returnable. Where a Special Local Secretary is subsequently appointed the Managers must send to him the names of the candidates who are to draw from casts.

For examination time tables see pp. 81 and 86. These examinations are for duly qualified students in approved Science and Art classes, but on certain conditions, they may be attended by other candidates.

A success in Honours obtained before the division of Honours qualifies a candidate to sit for examination in Part II. of that subject. Parts I. and II. cannot both be taken in the same year (see Special Conditions in Subjects VIIIa., VII16., and VIIIc.). A competitor for an exhibition or scholarship may be examined without the prescribed qualification, and will be credited in the competition with the marks which he may obtain. He will not, however, in that case be credited with

b. Practical examinations for candidates in
Honours in Subjects II.,III., IV., VIII., IX., X.,XI.,
may be held at South Kensington,or at some other
centre, in addition to a written examination (see
syllabus of each subject). Such practical exa-
minations will be held as early as possible in the
month of June.
Candidates who are instructed to attend Practical

examinations at South Kensington or any other
centre, receive a maintenance allowance of 78. 6d.

and third class railway fare ; but no cab or omnibus
fares are allowed.

Special examinations may be held for Naviga-

and of the capitation grants payable to such
schools will be forwarded on application.


XXIII. Where numerous examinations have to be held, or where a large School is to be examined, the Board will require the appointment of a Special Local Secretary to manage the whole business of the examination.
