Statutum de Examinatione Candidatorum qui non sunt de
corpore Universitatis. Candidatorum qui non sunt de corpore Universitatis Examinatio vel intra Academiam, vel, si res ita ferat, etiam alibi, quotannis habeatur duplex ; videlicet, Seniorum, qui ante diem tricesimum mensis Aprilis immediate praecedentis decimum octavum; Juniorum, qui ante diem primum mensis Januarii* immediate praecedentis decimum quintum aetatis annum non compleverint.
Fiat Examinatio tum in Rudimentis Fidei et Religionis (nisi alicujus parentes vel qui in loco parentis sint conscientiae causa hanc renuerint); tum in literis Anglicis, in historia, in linguis, in mathematica, in scientiis physicis, et in caeteris artibus quae ad juventutem liberaliter educandam pertinent. Testimonium accipiat quicunque tum Seniorum tum Juniorum Examinatoribus satisfecerit ; titulo etiam Associati in Artibus ex Academiae auctoritate Senioribus collato.
Eorum vero, quorum parentes vel qui in loco parentis sint Examinationem in Rudimentis Fidei et Religionis renuerint, si quis in Scripturis Sacris solis examen subire voluerit, id ei reputetur : proviso ne quis in Rudimentis Fidei et Religionis Examinatoribus satisfecisse habeatur, nisi qui tum in Scripturis Sacris, tum in doctrina et ritibus Ecclesiae Anglicanae, quaestionibus satis responderit.

Terni in singulis trientibus officio suo cedant in Termino Michaelis post electionem Concilii Hebdomadalis triennalem.

Sin Examinator aliquis postea munere se abdicaverit, Vice-Cancellarius et Procuratores sua auctoritate alium in ejus locum sufficiant.
Liceat delegatis puellas inter Candidatos adnumerare.
Feoda a singulis examinandis exigantur, quanta, e judicio Delegatorum, expensis necessariis examinationum sufficiant.
