Abstract

Everyone was encouraged to enter the University. However, there were two provisos: potential students had to be over fifteen, and they had to pass the Matriculation Examination prescribed by the University. Here is a scarce copy of a matriculation examination for Latin in 1888. The examiner was Otago’s Professor of Classics, George Sale. One sentence that candidates had to translate into grammatically correct Latin was: ‘I do not know what to do’.
