The College Entrance Examination Board consists of the president or an authorized representative of each participating college or university and of representatives of the secondary schools.

Representatives of the secondary schools are appointed, in such manner as the association choosing them may direct, by

The New England Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools
The Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools of the Middle States

and Maryland Each association may appoint one secondary-school representative for every three colleges and universities that are members of the Board and represented in such association, provided, however, that one representative may be appointed on the admission to the Board of one such college or university, and provided, further, that the number of secondary-school representatives appointed by any one association shall in no case exceed five. Representatives of secondary schools may also be appointed directly by the Board to the number of five.

No college which accepts the examinations of the Board in lieu of separate admission examinations surrenders its right to enforce such standards of excellence as it pleases or to make such allowance as it wishes for character and capacity on the part of students applying for admission. Each college determines for itself what subjects it will require for admission and what minimum rating it will accept as satisfactory.

The manifest advantages of the examinations held by the Board are:

1. They represent the coöperation of colleges and secondary schools in respect to a matter of vital importance to both.

2. They represent the coöperative effort of a group of colleges, no one of which thereby surrenders its individuality.

3. They are uniform in subject matter. 4. They are uniformly administered.

5. By reason of their uniformity they aid greatly the work of the secondary schools.

6. They are held at many points, to meet the convenience of students, at one and the same time.

7. They tend to effect a marked saving of time, money, and effort in administering college admission requirements.

Full information in regard to examination fees, dates at which applications for examination must be filed, and the rules governing the conduct of the examinations will be furnished by the Secretary upon request.
