Not illustrated. 1893 edition. Excerpt: ...each of the other schools, and have been selected in the same manner. All the questions to be asked have been chosen by the medical council in Paris, from the number sent from all the schools. These questions, in a sealed envelope, with each question also sealed, and those for the different grades separated, are sent to the board of examiners after they have met in session. The candidate to be first examined is determined by lot, as well as the question to be first asked. All other candidates then withdraw, and are placed under guard in a distant room. As soon as the question is answered, the same question is put to each of the others, the order being determined by lot. Thus a separate question is drawn at each day's session. As a candidate answers, each professor places after the name his estimate of the value. When the answer is written, it is placed in a sealed envelope, and is read aloud next day by the candidate in public. After the last question has been answered, there is prepared, in secret session, a list of all the candidates, with the marks of each professor opposite his name. This list is sent to Paris, where a superior commission is appointed, to consider these marks and make the final classification. The minimum for each grade is 200, and 20 is the maximum for each question. No one can serve as a member of the examining board who is, in any degree, a relation or a connection of any student.
