Some of the testing centers in

Creighton university and the Uni
versity of Omaha.
To be eligible to take the test,
an applicant (1) must be a se

intends to request deferment as
a student; (2) must be satisfac
torily pursuing a full-time col
lege course, graduate or under
graduate, leading to a degree;
(3) must not have .previously

that a passing grade on the test
does not insure deferment of the
student Results of the test serve
only as guides for local draft

to follow them. He explained that
a score of 70 is passing in the
test. Only 16 per cent of entire

to achieve such a score, he said.
