The College Entrance Examination Board consists of the president or an authorized representative of each participating college or university and of representatives of the secondary schools.

Representatives of the secondary schools are appointed, in such manner as the association choosing them may direct, by

The New England Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools
The Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools of the Middle States

and Maryland
The Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools of the Southern States

The North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools Each association may appoint one secondary-school representative for every three colleges and universities that are members of the Board and represented in such association, provided, however, that one representative may be appointed on the admission to the Board of one such college or university, and provided, further, that the number of secondary-school representatives appointed by any one association shall in no case exceed five. Representatives of secondary schools may also be appointed directly by the Board to the number of five.

The certificates issued by the Board are accepted by almost every college and university in the United States.

No college which accepts these certificates in lieu of separate admission examinations surrenders its right to enforce such standards of excellence as it pleases,

students applying for admission. The certificate merely states that the holder was examined at a stated time and place in specified subjects, and, as a result of such examinations, received the ratings entered upon the certificate. Each college determines for itself what subjects it will require for admission and what minimum rating it will accept as satisfactory.

The manifest advantages of the examinations held by the Board are:

1. They represent the coöperation of colleges and secondary schools in respect to a matter of vital importance to both.

2. They represent the coöperative effort of a group of colleges, no one of which thereby surrenders its individuality.

3. They are uniform in subject matter. 4. They are uniformly administered.

5. By reason of their uniformity they aid greatly the work of the secondary schools.

6. They are held at many points, to meet the convenience of students, at one and the same time.

7. They tend to effect a marked saving of time, money, and effort in administering college admission requirements.

The pamphlet containing the definitions of the several requirements will be sent to any address on receipt of ten cents in stamps.

The uniform entrance examinations of 1918 will be held during the week beginning June 17, 1918.

A list of places at which the examinations are to be held will be published about March 1. Requests that the examinations be held at particular points, in order to receive proper consideration, should be received by the Secretary not later than February 1.

Full information in regard to examination fees, dates at which applications for examination must be filed, and the rules governing the conduct of the examinations will be furnished by the Secretary upon request. All correspondence relating to the work of the Board should be addressed College Entrance Examination Board
