Scope and content

Programmes, Reports and Examination Papers of the RSA's examinations were printed annually between 1856 and 1990. After this date records include the Examination Papers only. Between 1890 and 1940 Programmes, Reports and Examination Papers are included in one volume.\n\nFrom 1856-1919 and 1932-1966 the publications detailing the course content were called Programmes. For the years 1920-1931 and from 1967 onwards the same publications were called Syllabuses. The content of both Programmes and Syllabuses are the same. \n\nFrom 1925 the Examination Papers were bound in separate volumes. There are separate volumes for Examination Papers in Languages (for the years 1983-1986); Typewriting (1915-1989); Music (1915-1925); Office Practice and Secretarial Duties (1981-1982); Special Examinations (1951-1980); School Certificates (1957-1973) and Teacher's Certificates (1949-1988).\n\nThe Reports include details regarding the total number of candidates with pass and fail rates but do not include the lists of individual candiates, only those candidates who were awarded with special prizes.
