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.

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.
