Institutions receiving State Aid, such as the
Queen's Colleges in Ireland, the Royal College of
Science, London, the Royal College of Science,
Dublin, and the Royal Dockyard Schools, will

The Board will consider proposals to make ap-

Certificates of attendance will be supplied to Managers of Schools who furnish a list on Form 279 of the names of students who have attended during the session at least 25 lessons of an hour each in the Elementary Stage of a Science Subject (theoretical), or in Group I. (Art), or 40 lessons in a recognised group of subjects (p. 7), or 40 lessons of less than an hour, and not less than 40 minutes in the Elementary Stage of a Science Subject (theoretical), for issue to such students.

All the attendances which are to qualify a student for a Certificate must have been made under one body of Managers and in a single session. A student whose registration in any session commences after the prescribed date can receive no certificate in respect of attendance during that session. SCIENCE.
