The examination will be oral and will consist of three parts:
(i) text recognition based on the compulsory readings;
(ii) random topic (period, author, or concept) to be discussed by the candidate (see exam topics);
(iii) selected topic to show knowledge of an area different from (i) and (ii).
Although the text recognition part will be weighed quite heavily, the inability confidently to identify literary passages will not automatically lead to a failing grade.
