OUR attention has been attracted by the general dissatisfaction given by the marks for the last hour examination in Natural History 3. It appears that the examination was made up of one long general question and several shorter ones. The instructor stated that a student could attain the maximum mark by devoting his attention to the first question. Many confined themselves to this one question. Others wrote part of the time on the first, and then answered some of the other questions. On looking over the books the instructor marked them on a scale of 100 for the first question, and then added credit for the other questions; thus in many cases making a mark considerably greater than 100; but to those unfortunates who confined their attention to the first question he refused to give more than 100, which is clearly not the maximum mark, as he has given in several cases a greater one. Clearly there is a misunderstanding somewhere, and one which should be cleared up.
