§ 12. Mr. Hannan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will state for each of the past three years the number of pupils who gained three higher and two or more O level passes in the Scottish Certificate of Education examination.
§ Mr. Noble
This particular figure is not available for 1961 but the number was 1,761 in 1962 and 557 in 1963. Those figures exclude, of course, pupils who got more than three highers in the particular year and they relate to passes at one examination, not to the total number of passes obtained by the time the pupil leaves.
