§ 2. Mr. Moss
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Education whether he will state the number of secondary modern schools in which the 1282 General Certificate of Education may be taken; what proportion of the secondary modern age-group gets the opportunity to take it; and with what success.
§ Sir E. Boyle
Last year more than 8,500 candidates from about 600 secondary modern schools entered for the General Certificate of Education. These schools accounted for about a quarter of the secondary modern school roll. Their candidates were successful in about half the subjects for which they entered.
