HC Deb 20 March 1962 vol 656 c38W
Mr. W. Yates

asked the Minister of Education what consideration he has given to allowing children two attempts, between the ages of 10 and 12 years, at the eleven-plus examination.

Sir D. Eccles

This is a matter best left to the local education authorities, but I do not consider it would be good for the children or the schools to test large numbers of children for selection a year early.
