1. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in an Order in Council of the twenty-fourth day of September, one thousand eight hundred and seventy-eight, the annual examination of candidates for teachers' certificates shall be held in the last week in January of every year, and not in the month of March, and candidates for any class must give written notice, accompanied by all necessary testimonials and declarations, not later than the first day of November immediately before the examination.
2. Every candidate for examination, with the exception of candidates who apply to be examined in elementary science or domestic economy only, and of candidates who having been partially successful at a former examination present themselves for examination in those subjects only in which they were at that former examination unsuccessful, shall, at the time of giving notice of intention to be present at the examination, pay to the credit of the Public Account at any branch of the Bank of New Zealand the sum of one pound sterling as a contribution towards defraying the expenses of the examination, and shall forward the bank receipt to the Minister of Education, with the notice of intention to sit at the examination.
3. No application for examination will be received unless it be accompanied by a certificate, signed by a Public School Inspector, and setting forth that the candidate has passed before such Inspector a satisfactory examination in reading, spelling, dictation, and writing; but this regulation shall not apply to candidates who already hold certificates granted to them by the Minister of Education, nor to candidates who present themselves in those subjects only in which at a former examination they were unsuccessful.
4. These regulations shall come into force upon the date hereof.
