By a Decree of the Board, dated 30th November, 1793, it was resolved, That a Gold Medal be given to every Student who shall have answered every Examination from his entrance to the taking of his Bachelor's Degree, and at each examination shall have got judgments not inferior to one Bene with Valde Benea.

In the year 1816 this mode of giving Medals was abolished, and Gold Medals given, one to the best answerer in Science, and another to the best answerer in Classics, at an Examination held in distinct Courses prescribed for that purpose.

The regulations which passed the Board in June, 1833, have substituted for the Classical and Science Medals, Moderatorships, with Gold and Silver Medals, in Mathematics and Physics; in Classics ; in Logies, Ethics, and Political Economy. În 1850, Moderatorships in Experimental Physics were instituted ; and in 1856, Moderatorships in History, Political Science, and English Literature.
