The historical questions shall not be confined to any one period, but shall cover the whole of British History, and shall be set in such a way as to give an opportunity to candidates who have confined their studies to a single period to show their knowledge. A single three hours' paper shall be set, containing an Essay, a Paraphrase, two questions on History, two on Geography, four on Grammar (including Correction of Sentences, Parsing, Analysis of Sentences and Derivations), two of a literary and general kind. Eight answers shall be required. The eight shall include the Essay and the Paraphrase, and at least one question in History and one in Geography.
One paper shall be set in French and one in German. The papers shall be of a lower standard than those set in these subjects in the Arts and Science Preliminary. The time allowed for each of these papers shall be three hours. The paper in each subject shall comprise questions in Grammar, translation into English and Composition (including a continuous passage, and .short sentences of an idiomatic character).
The Latin Examination will include-Translation and Parsing, Prose Composition, Grammar and Sentences.

The paper in Mathematics will be devoted to the various subjects com. prised, in as nearly as possible the following proportions : Four-ninths to Geometry, three-ninths to Algebra, and two-ninths to Arithmetic. Each question in Geometry will consist of two parts, of which one will be an easy deduction or illustrative exercise on the proposition set as bookwork.
The papers set in examinations in an “Additional Language," approved by the Senatus, or in the student's native language (as a substitute for the Additional Language) or in another classical language (as a substitute for Latin), under the above-mentioned Medical Ordinances shall conform, so far as possible, to the directions for setting papers in Modern Languages and in Latin respectively.
Candidates who, having taken English, or a Modern Language on the Higher Standard, as prescribed by the Arts Ordinance for the Arts and Science Preliminary, have obtained a satisfactory percentage of marks, shall be held to have passed the Medical Preliminary in these subjects, provided that all the required subjects are passed at not more than two examinations.
It shall be in the option of any candidate for the Medical Preliminary to take the papers set on the Higher Standard for the Arts Preliminary in any
of the subjects. It is at the Joint Board's discretion at all times in the case of any candidate for the Medical Preliminary who professes all his four subjects at one time and who has obtained in a number of marks equivalent to the sum of the marks required for a pass in each, to allow such candidate a pass in the whole examination, provided that in no single subject he has obtained less than half of the marks required for a pass, and that the pass mark be reached in the English paper. Special consideration is given, at the discretion of the Board, in the case of foreign candidates, but a candidate whose native language is not English must have passed in at least two of the subjects without deduction being made on his behalf from the ordinary standard prescribed by the Board in these subjects.
