This is the season of the year in which the one hour examination inflicts its terrors on the student; and a strong cry of protest is heard from certain quarters. Disagreeable as it may be to some, the one hour examination is very useful in necessitating a thorough review of a subject and compelling the student to acquire a tolerably thorough knowledge of one branch of his study before proceeding to the consideration of another, and for that reason it does the student a real benefit. As no time is more convenient for study than the present, and as a relief from the pressure of the mid-year examinations is exceedingly welcome, we think that one hour examinations are of great benefit, and that there is really no good reason for such strong objections to them as we frequently hear.
