Doctor In The House (1946)

They took up their positions; the leather book was opened. The elder porter raised his voice.
`Number two hundred and nine,' he began. `Number thirty-seven. Number one hundred and fifty.'
The tension in the room broke as the students shuffled to the front and lined up before. the staircase. The numbers were not called in order, and the candidates strained to hear their own over the low rumble of conversation and scraping of feet that rose from the assembly.
`Number one hundred and sixty-one,' continued the porter. `Number three hundred and two. Number three hundred and six.'
Grimsdyke punched me hard in the ribs.
`Go on,' he hissed. `It's you!'
I jumped and struggled my way to the front of the restless crowd. My pulse shot high in my ears. My face was burning hot and I felt my stomach had been suddenly plucked from my body.
I lined up in the short queue by the stairs. My mind was empty and numb. I stared at the red neck of the man in front of me, with its rim of blue collar above his coat, and studied it with foolish intensity. Suddenly I found myself on top of the Secretary.
`Number three oh six?' the Secretary whispered, without looking up from the book. `R. Gordon?'
`Yes,' I croaked.
