Pass over question one in no-good sullen seminar (10)


I believe the answer is:


'no-good sullen seminar' is the definition.
'colloquium' can be an answer for 'seminar' (thesaurus). I'm not sure about the 'no-good sullen' bit.

'pass over question one in' is the wordplay.
'pass' becomes 'col' (col is a term for a mountain pass).
'over' becomes 'loum' (I can't justify this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'question' becomes 'qu' (abbreviation).
'one' becomes 'i' (Roman numeral).
'in' indicates putting letters inside.
'loum' going around 'qui' is 'loquium'.

I've seen this clue in The Times.
