HC Deb 15 July 1912 vol 41 cc33-4
78. Mr. WATT

asked whether the Civil Service Commissioners would be willing to exhibit, on payment of a small fee, examination papers adjudged upon in any particular examination, so that candidates might see in what respect they had failed and in what respect succeeded?


I understand the Civil Service Commissioners do not see their way to adopt the hon. Member's suggestion. In nearly all cases of competition the marks awarded to a candidate in each particular subject are published, and show sufficiently his strength or weakness.


Has the right hon. Gentleman had representations on this matter?


I have had no representations, but I should be glad to receive them if the hon. Member is willing to make them.
