"This Committee recommends that Senate consider the
feasibility of administering a pre-entrance
examination on the English language to foreign
students who apply for admission to the University
and who have studied at schools where the language
of instruction is not English. Such an examination
would be administered abroad by officials of the
Canadian government, if they were willing to do so, Wednesday, May llth, 1955     2171
or by other responsible persons designated by the
Registrar. The results of the examination would
assist the Registrar in making a decision under the
requirements of paragraph 5, p. 54, Calendar, 1955-56.
At the same time, the Registrar would be better able
to inform the foreign student as to the likelihood
of his success at the University."
