§ 94. Mr. Drayson
asked the Minister of Education if facilities are available for students called up for National Service to take their higher school certificate while so engaged.
§ Mr. Hardman
Boys normally take the higher school certificate examination before leaving school and if this means remaining at school for a few months after the age of 18, their call-up can be postponed for this purpose. Any man who may, nevertheless, wish to take the examination while serving in H.M Forces should apply for leave on personal grounds.
