8. The Presiding Officer shall exercise necessary vigilance at all times while 
the candidates are engaged in writing, and he shall not give his attention to any

7. Candidates are also reminded that the Presiding Officer is not allowed to 
make any explanation or other statement regarding the probable meaning of any 
question or to give any advice as to what question should be answered by the 
candidates or how any question should be answered. 

Should an error appear to have been made in any question, no attention shall 
be drawn to it during the time of examination by either the Presiding Officer or any 
of the candidates. Candidates may, however, at the end of the examination period 
submit the matter to the Presiding Officer, who, if he considers it necessary, will 
report on the matter to the Department at the close of the examination. 

8. In case of the illness of any candidate affecting his examination, he shall

14. The Department does not f urnish statements of the matriculation stand¬ 
ing obtained by scholarship candidates, either for pass or honours. 

15. The answer papers of all candidates are read carefully by boards of As¬ 
sociate Examiners selected from the successful teachers of the Province. All papers 
on a subject are valued according to a uniform scale of marks decided upon by the 
Examiner-in-chief in consultation with a committee of Associate Examiners in 
charge of that subject. Every paper which is valued near the pass mark by an As¬ 
sociate Examiner is subject to revision by the chairman of the section. 

After the results are made up from the marks thus assigned, the papers of 
all candidates for Model, Normal and Faculty Entrance examinations who fail by 
not more than a reasonable margin in any way are immediately re-read by the 
Examiners-in-chief. Candidates who still fail in this supplementary reading are 
sent statements of marks stamped with the word ^^Pe-read.^^ No further appeal is 
allowed in such cases. 

Besides the precautions outlined above, the addition and transferring of marks 
is carefully checked on all answer papers. 

16. (1) In cases of failure where the statements of marks are not stamped as 
“ Pe-read/'’ candidates may have their papers re-read on lodging an appeal before 


September 1st, and paying a fee of $2.00, or after September 1st on paying a fee 
of $5.00. The fee will be returned -if the appeal is sustained. No appeal against a 
Departmental examination will be entertained if received after September 11th. 

(2) Pupils making appeals shall state where they wrote and the examination 
attempted. Principals sending in appeals in behalf of pupils shall make each appeal 
on a separate sheet of paper. 

(3) Appeals in the case of the Matriculation examination shall be addressed 
to the Secretary of the University Matriculation Board, Parliament Buildings, 
Toronto. All other appeals shall be addressed to the Deputy Minister of Education. 

(4) No appeal is allowed against scholarship awards. 

17. Candidates shall take with them into the examination room, when pre¬ 
senting themselves for examination in their first subject, the exact amount of the 
examination fee prescribed and shall place it on their desks for collection as in¬ 
structed by the Presiding Officer. (See Section C below.) 

18. Applications shall not be received by the Inspector after the prescribed date, 
and candidates are reminded that they should in no case forward their applications 
to the Department. If a candidate should, through an oversight, neglect to have 
his application duly sent to the Inspector, he may present himself at the examina¬ 
tion, when the Presiding Officer is at liberty to admit him, provided that there is 
the necessary accommodation, and that a sufficient number of question papers has 
been received. An additional fee of $1 shall be exacted by the Presiding Officer 
from a candidate who presents himself in this way. 


Candidates are required to pay the prescribed fee on the first day of their 
examinations. (See 17 above.) With a view to facilitating the collection of the 
fees with a minimum amount of inconvenience, and to render it unnecessary for 
the Presiding Officer to interfere in any way with the candidates while they are 
writing, the following instructions are given:— 

1. The Presiding Officer shall carefully observe Instruction 9, Section A above, 
and have all arrangements completed and material distributed so.that candidates 
may be seated in their places not later than 15 minutes before the time set for the 
first paper. 

2. The fee slips, a supply of which will be found in the bag, shall be distributed 
with the other material specified in Instructions 19 and 20, Section A above, one 
slip being placed in full view on each desk. 

3. Before reading Instructions 1-8, Section B above, the Presiding Officer shall 
instruct the candidates to fill in the fee slips. Each candidate shall enter his name, 
the name of his examination, and the amount of the fee, and place the slip on his 
desk together with the exact amount of his fee. 

4. After reading the instructions to candidates and before distributing the 
question papers, the Presiding Officer shatl collect the slip and the fee from each 



candidate, taking care to check the one with the other before proceeding to the next 
candidate. This work shall be completed before the time for distributing the 
question papers. Presiding Officers are advised not to accept cheques.

the first day, the Presiding Officer shall check the slips and the fees with the 
entries in Examination Porm 108 or 109 as the case may be.

betical order) and the fees paid. The form (Examination Porm 170) for this 
purpose will be found in the bag. 

Note. —In the case of a candidate who did not make application to the Inspector 
by the prescribed date, and whose name, therefore, does not appear in Form 108' or 109, 
as the case may be, the Presiding Officer shall collect from him $1.00 in addition to 
the prescribed fee, (see Instruction 18, Section B above), and he shall also require him 
to submit an application for the examination. Such application shall be satisfactory, 
especially in respect of the certificates required re Supplementary Reading, Science, 
Art and the bonus subjects. The name of such candidate shall be entered at the foot 
of the duplicate list (Form 170), with the entry, “Late candidate,” opposite.

School examinations (Model Entrance, Senior Public School Graduation, Senior 
High School Entrance, and Lower School), the Presiding Officer shall forward to 
the Public School Inspector (1") Form 109, (2) the duplicate lists (Form 170), 
(3) the total amount of fees received, and (4) the applications of late candidates 
(if any). The fee slips shall be retained by the Presiding Officer as his check on 
the fees received. 

8. A similar procedure shall be followed in the case of all the Middle and 
Upper School examinations reported on Form 108. The returns and fees for these 
examinations shall be forwarded to the Public School Inspector as early as possible 
after all the candidates have presented themselves. At a centre where a change 
of Presiding Officers takes place before all the candidates listed on Form 108 have 
presented themselves, the first Presiding Officer shall leave for the second (1) Form 
108, (2) Form 170, in duplicate, containing lists of fees already received, (3) 
the fee slips of all such candidates, (4) the applications of late candidates (if any),

over directly, the first Presiding Officer shall purchase a money order payable to 
the Inspector and leave this for his successor. _ 

9. The Inspector, on the receipt of the lists and fees, shall check the same, 
divide the total amount received according to instructions (see Instruction 4,

of candidates for the examination (Exam. Form 108 or 109). To facilitate this, 
elastic bands have been supplied, one for each candidate’s set of answers.
