There is a Supplementary Class in Summer, which must be attended by all who do not pass the Degree Examination in March.

The examination work for the M.A. Degree in Latin includes (a) Set books, (b) Unseen Translation and Composition, (c) History (both political and literary) and Geography. Candidates are required to pass in each of these three departments separately, and not merely to attain a certain aggregate of marks over all three.
