  • When I was in school all we knew of the 11-plus was that if you passed you had the option to go to the local grammar school, and if you failed you went to the secondary modern - with a second chance to sit the exam at age 13 just in case failing the 11-plus had been down to nerves rather than a lack of academic ability.
