He had chosen the more difficult scholarship examination rather than the regular entrance examination because he hoped to save his family the cost of tuition. Wiseman again intervened and wrote to those responsible for admissions at Jesus College that Mitchell’s examination performance should be ignored since it did not reflect his true ability and accomplishments, especially in mathematics and the physical sciences.

Mr. Wiseman, in addition to being a skilled mathematician and mathematics teacher, with first-class degrees in mathematics and physics from Peterhouse College, Cambridge University,10 was also a first-rate amateur pianist.
