HC Deb 10 May 1950 vol 475 c65W
78. Mr. Pickthorn

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what has been done, and is being done, to minimise difficulties and misunderstandings arising in the Colonies from changed rules for admission to United Kingdom universities consequent upon the new leaving certificate arrangements.

Mr. Dugdale

I am glad to say that universities in this country have agreed to recognise success in specified subjects of the present Overseas School and Higher Certificate for exemption of Colonial students from their entrance requirements until at least 1952. This in itself will minimise difficulties in the Colonies. An authoritative article on this subject is being published in the forthcoming issue of "Oversea Education" and I will send the hon. Member a copy.
