The title first covers the general concerns in secondary school examinations, such as the pass/fail concept, reforms, interpretation of results, and admissibility of subjects. Next, the selection tackles the examination in the ordinary level. The third chapter discusses the Certificate of Secondary Education (C.S.E.) examination; this chapter details the advantages of the C.S.E. along with its systems. Chapter 4 covers the advanced level and university entrance requirements. The next two chapters deal with the General Certificate of Education (G.C.E.) examining bodies. The seventh chapter examines the secondary school testing system in the U.S., while the last chapter talks about the future of the English secondary school examinations. The book will be of great use to both in-training and professional teachers. School administrators will also benefit from the text.
