HC Deb 14 June 1951 vol 488 c207W
91. Mr. Hollis

asked the Minister of Education whether he will introduce a distinction mark in addition to the old pass mark in the General Certificate of Education.

Mr. Hardman

The present arrangements, which enable candidates to show their qualifications in a particular subject at one of two levels, the Ordinary and the Advanced, are only just coming into operation, and my right hon. Friend would therefore be reluctant to vary them. He is not convinced that the addition of a third level of qualification would be either necessary or desirable.
