Course 1, or Course A with four units taken from Courses 1 and 4, fulfils the prescription for the Colleges of Commerce, Agriculture, and Chemistry. Courses A, 1, 2, and 4, are especially adapted to the needs of students in the Colleges of Applied Science.

The Group Elective. This list may be made from any of the Advanced Courses, but it must include at least one dealing with the earlier history of our language and literature, 11a to 14D. Students are recommended, but not required, to include also in the list a course in composition, 6-10; a course in the theory of literature, 9 or 26; and one in modern authors, periods or movements, 15 to 23. All courses,

For Teachers' Certificates the requirements are the same as for Group Elective, except that in the fifteen units of Advanced Courses candidates must include beside 11a, two other courses from the list 11A to 14D. If, however, they are combining advanced studies in Economics, Politics, History or Jurisprudence, with English for their Groups, they may substitute for this requirement, within the fifteen advanced units prescribed for the certificate, 7B, 7c, and any one course from 11A to 14D.
