THE SOUTH BETHLEHEM BUSINESS COLLEGE      Twenty-first page

 

Examinations

There are no examinations for admission. Written examinations for promotion and graduation are held monthly.

Applicants who wish to be assigned to our advanced classes in Arithmetic, Grammar, Correspondence, etc., will be given a test in these subjects. Public school teachers and graduates of high schools and institutions of equal or higher grade will be admitted to the advanced classes without examination.

 

Requirements for Graduation

Students who desire to graduate must do the work outlined and pass satisfactory examinations in all the branches included in the course pursued. In Shorthand, the student is required to write new matter at the rate of one hundred and ten words a minute for five consecutive minutes, and to transcribe the notes correctly on the typewriter within thirty minutes. The speed required in Typewriting is fifty words per minute from dictation and forty words per minute in copying.

A diploma is given free to all students completing either the Business or the Shorthand Course.

 

Length of a Course

The time required for the average student to complete either the Business or the Shorthand Course varies from six months to a school year, and for the Combined Course from one to two terms.

Much depends upon the student's age, education when enrolling, and application to work while in school. Some accomplish more in one month than others do in three, and it is almost impossible to state in advance how long it will require a particular student. Teachers and graduates of high schools and colleges frequently complete a course in less than the time mentioned, while very young pupils and those whose early education has been neglected may need more.

It does not require any more time to complete a course at this institution than it does at any other high-grade business school.
