Hebrero Sizarships. For the encouragement of the study of Hebrew, one Sizarship is given annually to the best answerer in the Entrance Course, together with the following Course of Hebrew :

Hebrew Grammar.
Genesis, chaps. xi. to xxxiii., both inclusive.
Psalms xxi. to xl., both inclusive.

The Latin and Greek books for the Hebrew Sizarship Examination are those appointed for the viva voce portion of the Examination for Classical Sizarships.

In determining the election to the Hebrew Sizarship, equal weight is allowed to the answering in Classics and in Hebrew.

It was ordered by the Board, on November 8, 1856, “ That, in future, no Student shall be elected to a Sizarship for answering in Hebrew, unless the Examiners report him to the Senior Lecturer as having positive merit of a high order.

Irish Sizarships.For the encouragement of the study of Irish, one Sizarship is given annually to the best answerer in the Entrance Course, together with the following Course of Irish :

O'Donovan's Irish Grammar.
Wright's Irish Grammar.
Neilson's Irish Grammar,
Translation from Irish into English, and from English into Irish.
The Four Gospels, and Epistles to the Romans and the Hebrews, in

The Gospels to be translated from Greek into Irish.

The Examination is conducted partly by written questions, and partly rivâ voce.

The Examinations for the Mathematical, Hebrew, and Irish Sizarships are held on days succeeding the Classical Sizarship Examination; and a Candidate for Classical Sizarship, if unsuccessful, may also present himself as a Candidate in any other department”.

FELLOWSHIP AND SCHOLARSHIP EXAMINATIONS. The following Regulations have been adopted by the Board, relative to the Examinations for Fellowships and Scholarships :


1. The election to Fellowship shall be made on the general result of an Examination in all the subjects.

A Student who has been already a Candidate for Sizarship three times is considered ipeligible, and will not be admitted a fourth time to the Examination.


2. The subjects of Examination shall be comprised in four Courses : viz., 1. Mathematics (pure and applied); 2. The Mental and Moral Sciences; 3. Experimental Physics (viz., the Sciences of Light, Heat, Electricity, and Magnetism); 4. Classics. The particular subjects and books to be included in each Course shall be submitted by the Examiners to the Board, for their sanction.

3. No minimum of answering, in any Course, shall be required.

4. The following numbers shall be adopted, to represent the highest possible answering in each of the four Courses: Mathematics (pure and applied),

Mental and Moral Sciences,
Experimental Physics,

Classics (including Hebrew),

900 5. There shall be at least two Examiners in each of the first three Courses, and at least three in the fourth; and the Senior Lecturer shall be, in addition, an ex officio member of each Court of Examiners. Oral Examination shall be retained as part of the Examination, both in Science and Classics ; and it shall be open to the public. All the Examiners shall be required to be present at the vivå roce Examination of every Course ; and it shall be the duty of the Senior Lecturer to make up, conjointly with each Court of Examiners, the numerical result of the answering in the written Examinations, and to announce the same to the other Examiners, as soon as possible after the close of the corresponding part of the Examination.

6. The Examination for Fellowship shall last for eight days, to commence on the Wednesday after Ascension Day, and to be continued on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of the same week, and on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, of the week following.

8. In the oral Examination in Science, all the Candidates shall be examined together; and in the oral Examination in Classics, they shall be examined separately.

9. The Latin language shall not necessarily be used, as a medium of communication, in any part of the Examination.

EXAMINATION FOR SCHOLARSHIP. 1. There shall be two classes of Scholars elected for Scientific and for Classical merit respectively.

2. Candidates for Science Scholarship will be examined in all the Science of the Undergraduate Course, to the Trinity Examination of the Junior Sophister year, inclusive.

3. The Examination for Science Scholarships will be held on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, in Ascension week, from 9 to 12 in the forenoon, and from 2 to 5 in the afternoon, of each day.

4. The following numbers have been adopted, to represent the highest possible answering in the several Courses :I. Mathematics,


Mechanics and Astronomy,
II. Physics, Experimental Physics, :



300 III. Logics and Metaphysics,

400 5. Of the whole number of Scholarships to be filled up in 1857, six will be assigned to Science, and the remainder to Classics.

6. Candidates for Classical Scholarship will be examined in all the Classics of the Undergraduate Course, to the Trinity Examination of the Junior Sophister year, inclusive; as also in the Aristotelian Logic, as read for the Hilary Examination of the Senior Freshman Year

[The subjects of Examination, in the year 1857, will comprise the Old Junior Freshman, and the New Senior Freshman and Junior Sophister Courses.)

7. The Examination for Classical Scholarships will be held on Friday and Saturday of Ascension week, and on Monday and Tuesday of the week following, from 9 to 12 in the forenoon, and from 2 to 5 in the afternoon, of each day.

8. Each of the Examiners in the books will denote the answering of the several Candidates by uumbers ranging from 0 to 10. The answering in each of the papers given will be similarly denoted.

On or before the day of election every Candidate for Scholarship must send to each of the Examiners his name, and the name of the county in which he was born. The form in which this is generally done is as follows: Ego, A. B. — filius, natus in comitatu N., sub ferula educatus,

Discipulatum a te humillime peto. Every Candidate for Fellowship must make a similar return to the Provost, before the day of election“.


TERM EXAMINATIONS are held at the beginning of each Term. The hours of Examination are from nine to twelve in the forenoon, and from two to four in the afternoon, of each day.

Stat. chap. v. and vii.

No Student will be admitted to examination unless his name be on the College Books before the day of the examination of his Class.



1. Students in the first and second years of their undergraduate course are denominated Junior and Senior Freshmen; in the third and fourth years Junior and Senior Sophisters. In the fifth year Students are termed Candidate Bachelors, until they have actually taken the Degree of A. B., after which they are termed Junior Bachelors.

2. A Student who desires to avail himself, to the full extent, of the benefits of an University education, will reside and keep every Term by attendance on Lectures, and pass every Term Examination. The omission of a Term is therefore regarded as a collegiate offence, and punished by pecuniary tine.

3. But as some Students, from illness or other causes, must necessarily omit some Terms, the following regulations have been framed, for the purpose of enabling them in certain cases to supply the omission, as also for fixing the necessary limits of such omissions.

4. Terms may be kept in two ways: first, by attendance on Lectures, in which case three-fourths of the whole number of Lectures, in Science and in Classics respectively, must be attended with diligence; and the Tutors and other Lecturers have the power of refusing to give credit for attendance, if the Student should exhibit negligence or insufficient preparation“.

5. Terms may also be kept by passing the Term Examinations. Thus, for example, the Hilary Term may be kept by attending the Lectures given daily during that Term, or by passing the Examination, in the same subjects, held at the beginning of the succeeding Trinity Term. But the Student who keeps the Term by attending Lectures, and who also passes the corresponding Examination following, the subjects being the same, gets credit for but one and the same Term.

Sect. 1. Of the Terms to be kept in the Freshman Years. 1. To rise from the class of Junior to that of Senior Freshman, one Term, at least, must be kept by Examination. That is to say, a Student who, during his first year, fails to pass at least one Term Examination, even though he may have kept one or more Terms by

a All Students seeking credit for a Term by Lectures must, at the commencement of such Term, duly register with the Clerk of the Books their places of residence for that Term, and during Term notify a change of residence, otherwise credit for the Term can. not be allowed.

Lectures, cannot rise to the second Academic year, but will, at the end of his first year, be put back into his former class.

2. To rise from the class of Senior Freshman to that of Junior Sophister, the Student must pass the general Examination of Senior Freshmen held at the beginning of Michaelmas Term.

3. He will not, however, be permitted to present himself at this Examination, unless he have previously kept three Terms, one of which (as already stated) must have been kept by Examination in the Junior Freshman year; and one, either by Examination or by Lectures, in the Senior Freshman year. The third may be kept, either by Lectures or by Examination, in either year.

4. If one of these Terms be omitted, the Student, to keep his class, must pass a supplemental Examination in the subjects of the last Term Examination omitted) at the beginning of the Michaelmas Term of his Senior Freshman year; and he will then be permitted to present himself at a second supplemental Examination at the beginning of the succeeding Hilary Term, in the subjects of the general Senior Freshman Michaelmas Examination.

5. If, however, at the beginning of the Michaelmas Term of the Senior Freshman year, a Student shall be found to have kept no Terms (except the one Term kept by Examination, without which he could not have risen from the Junior Freshman class), then he cannot be allowed a supplemental Examination; and it will be the duty of the Senior Lecturer to put him back to the class below.

6. If a Student, being qualified to present himself, should nevertheless omit to present himself at the regular Senior Freshman Michaelmas Examination, or if he should fail to pass said Examination, he will be allowed to pass a supplemental Examination in the same subjects at the beginning of the succeeding Hilary Term. But in no case can he rise to the class of Sophister, until he has passed this general Examination; and if after the Hilary Examination of his third year, it shall be found that he has not passed said general Examination, he will be put back by the Senior Lecturer to his former class.

7. Thus the minimum of attendance absolutely necessary to qualify a Student to present himself at the general Michaelmas Senior Freshman Examination, will be one Term, kept by Examination, in his Junior Freshman year; one Term in his Senior Freshman year, which may be kept either by Lectures or by Examination; and one Term, which may also be kept in either way, and in either year.

8. The student must also, during his two Freshman years, keep Catechetical Terms, the rules of which will be found, page 41. Roman Catholics and other Dissenters are not required to keep Catechetical Terms, but may do so if they desire it.
