The names were printed in the school list in alphabetical order. Churchill’s name occurred at No.3 from the bottom. The two students, whose names were placed below Churchill’s name, left the school due to illness or some other reasons. Thus his name came to the bottom of the list.

Churchill and other such students were not allowed to learn Lain and Greek because they were the weakest students of the class. The teachers were of the view that they did not have the ability to learn these languages. Latin and Greek were considered splendid languages and hence only brilliant students were allowed to learn them.
