As second wrangler, he was also the first of his college in the actual Tripos examinations of 1865, though beaten to the position of senior (that is, first) wrangler by Robert Strutt, later Lord Rayleigh, who came from Trinity College. The syllabus for the Tripos during the early 1860s is of interest in the context of Marshall the mathematical economist. It was officially summarised in the following manner. The elementary material generally taught in first year covered Euclid Book I to VI, Book XI Propositions I to XXI, Book XII Propositions I and II.

In between, he served as temporary mathematics master at Clifton College, filling in for its permanent master, Charles Cay, who was unable to perform his duties due to illness.
