§ MR. YOXALL (Nottingham, W.)
To ask the Secretary to the Board of Education whether a student who has passed the Oxford or Cambridge local senior examination, and who subsequently desires to enter a training college for teachers, would be required to present himself in Part I. of the Preliminary Certificate Examination, or whether success in the above-named University Examination can be accepted in place of Part I. of the Preliminary Certificate Examination.
(Answered by Mr. Lough.) Part I. of the Preliminary Certificate Examination is an integral part of that examination, and is not imposed upon candidates for admission to training colleges who qualify for admission to a training college by passing one of the examinations other than the preliminary certificate examination recognised for that purpose. The Oxford and Cambridge senior locals are 616 so recognised, provided that the candidate satisfies the examiners in certain subjects specified in an Appendix to the Training College Regulations.
