Other candidates who wish to continue in the honour school should interview the head of the department of Germanic Languages, who will be guided in his recommendations by the merits of the case.
A student who has completed the First Year of the course for the ordinary degree, and has passed in German part I and Dutch part I, may, with the permission of the faculty, enter the honour school. Such a student must rocke special application to the faculty through the sub-dean, and if permission is granted, the faculty will prescribe what further work must be completed before the student is allowed to proceed to the final examination.
3. In their Second Year, candidates will take the honour course in German part II and Dutch part II, together with the remaining additional subject. Students taking course A. will be examined at the annual examination at the end of the Second Year in Dutch part II only, and those taking course В in German part II only. Other subjects will be tested in class.
For students, taking course C there will be no formal examination in German part II or Dutch part II at the end of the Second Year, but class tests in conversation and translation from and into the respective languages will be given, together with prescribed essays on literature.
4. In their Third Year, candidates in courses A and В will take the honour courses in German or Dutch part III and in addition Advanced Middle High German or Middle Dutch; candidates in course C will take the honour courses in German part III and Dutch part III, omitting the special literary study.
