Cakes and Ale for Examinee - Thanks to the Latin Dictum: 'Ius non trahi extra'

Here is an allegedly true story regarding examinations at Cambridge University.  Do remember that Cambridge is one of the oldest universities in the world, and its rules date back to the thirteenth century.

In May 2007 during a Peterhouse exam, a student called Newton looked up and asked the proctor to bring him Cakes and Ale. The following dialogue ensued:Cakes and aleStudent asks for cake and ale

Proctor: I beg your pardon?
Student: I request that that you bring me cakes and ale

Proctor: Sorry, no.
Student: Sir, I really must insist. I request and require that you bring me cakes and ale in accordance with 'Ius non trahi extra'.

At this point the student produced a copy of the six hundred year old Laws of Cambridge, written in Latin and still nominally in effect, and pointed to the section which read (rough translation from the Latin): 'Students sitting examinations may request cakes and ale.'

Newton argued that Pepsi cola and a cheeseburger were the nearest equivalent of the ancient right, and so he sat there, writing his examination and chomping away happily on his burger.

Footnote:

The next day, Newton was summoned to appear before the University Court of Discipline for not wearing a sword to the examination.  After duly considering the offence, Newton was fined ten shillings [$1 USD].

Addendum

Newton graduated on Thursday 28th of June 2007 with a third class degree in Aerodynamics & Acoustics.
