1879 Excerpt: ...from the Tenth Report of the Civil Service
Com-missioners refers to a change in the mode of assigning marks:
--"It has already "been mentioned as one of the ruling principles
of these examinations that no can-"didate should be allowed any
credit at all for taking up a subject in which he is a "mere
smatterer. Hitherto we have thought it enough, in conformity with
this "principle, to strike out all marks which indicated less than
a competent knowledge "of the subject selected; leaving those whose
knowledge exceeded, by ever so "little, the minimum of competence,
to count all the marks assigned to them. We "are of opinion,
however, that superficial study may be more effectually discouraged
"by allowing no credit for slight knowledge even to those
candidates who succeed "in passing beyond it. We propose,
therefore, that from the marks of all can-"didates alike a number
answering to this slight knowledge shall be deducted; "but that it
shall be possible, nevertheless, for any candidate who may show
"remarkable proficiency in any subject to obtain the full number of
marks allotted "to that subject" On this occasion a deduction of
125 has been made from the marks assigned in each subject. Open
