Report of the Indian Universities Commission (Simla: Government Central Printing Office, 1902), 16, 27–29, 51–52, 63–69, 81–84
A good examination paper is a work of art, and it is all things necessary that the examiner should be able to look at his questions from the candidate’s point of view, and that he should frame them so as to give the latter a series of opportunities of showing how far he possesses an intelligent and first-hand knowledge of the subject-matter. An important question has been raised in regard to those candidates who fail at the Intermediate and the degree examinations, and who wish to appear again. The establishment of professorships in the vernacular languages is an object to which University funds may be properly devoted. The oriental side of the Punjab University should be maintained and the courses for the degrees of Bachelor and Master of Oriental Learning should be retained with the following important modifications. The Oriental College ought to be subject to the same rules of affiliation as other colleges connected with the Punjab University.
