An examiner would regard such personal allusions as in bad taste. Do not go out of your way to drag in party shibboleths. An examination paper is not the proper place for partisanship and controversy. Yet it is, of course, allowable to argue temperately and modestly in favour of any particular view. It is high praise for an examiner to describe a paper as " workmanlike.” This is what should be aimed at. It is not a bad plan to number the different parts of an answer, but beware of drawing distinctions where there is no real difference. When the paper is finished, arrange the sheets in the order in which they were written, and in which they are to be read—the sheet first written innermost, and the sheet last written outermost. The name, subject, and nature of the examination (e.g., first year, exhibitions, simple admission) should then be written on the outside.

The hints that have been given above are of a strictly practical nature. They have had reference only to so much of theological knowledge as can be taught in lectures and tested in examinations. But the subject of theology has, of course, another aspect in which it stands alone amongst all subjects. And it is hoped that the course of reading through which the student will go, bringing him in contact, as it must, with the deepest and loftiest thoughts that can touch the heart or mould the character of man, may be not without fruit of another kind, and that the higher and better fruit, which examinations cannot test, may be sought in the way in which it is to be found. The key to the inner meaning of the Scriptures, and to the purpose and unity that runs through the history of the Church, is to be apprehended by a process that is not purely intellectual, and its attainment is possible to those who are most diffident as to their own powers.
