Candidates will be examined in Oxford, and in such other places as the Delegates may appoint.

An application to have a place appointed for this purpose should come to the Delegates from a Local Committee: such Committee being prepared to guarantee a payment of £25 (in case the Fees paid by the Candidates fall below that sum) and to undertake all those expenses which are occasioned by the Examination being Local, that is, by the Candidates being examined at that particular place instead of coming to Oxford for the purpose. Those expenses are mainly the following: the cost of providing suitable rooms for the Examination; the charges incurred by the Superintending Examiner (appointed by the Delegates) in travelling, lodging, and board; postage; carriage of parcels from and to Oxford; and some stationery. Each Committee should appoint a Local Secretary. Applications must be made, and notice of the discontinuance of old Centres must be given, before the 1st of February, 1883.

Girls may be examined at any place where boys are examined, and at such other places as the Delegates may appoint. But in every case the Delegates must first be satisfied,

I. That there is a Local Committee of ladies, who will efficiently superintend the examination of the girls;

2. That such Committee will see that girls who do not live in the place find suitable lodging and accommodation;

3. That the examination room for girls is quite separate from the room or rooms. intended for the boys.

Printed Forms, on which Candidates are to make application, will be prepared by the 1st of March and may be obtained until Saturday, 7th of April, after which date none will be issued. The Forms for Junior and Senior Candidates are distinct.

For examination in Oxford the Forms may be obtained from G. E. Baker, Esq., Clarendon Building, Oxford.
