HC Deb 28 April 1927 vol 205 cc1028-9W

asked the President of the Board of Education how many un certificated assistants sat in the examination for the Board of Education certificate held last November; how many of them passed; and whether those who failed can be informed of the subjects in which they failed to pass?


The total number of candidates who took the examination was 3,579, of whom 898, or 25.1 per cent., passed. These figures include a very small number of supplementary teachers with long service who were admitted exceptionally to the examination. Candidates at the certificate examination were not required to pass in individual subjects but in each of three groups of subjects and in the examination as a whole. Any candidate who failed may, if he applies, obtain information as to the subjects in which his work was weak.
