The University of London and School Examinations


WILL you spare me a few lines of space to reply to your first article of Thursday last? A portion of that article was directed against examinations in general, and would apply to the Oxford and Cambridge scheme, as well as to that put forward by our Sub-committee; far more so, in fact, as an important part of our scheme relates to inspection of methods of teaching, school-books, &c., which is not included in the conjoint scheme of the older Universities. Our object is to improve the education given in schools other than primary; and if the author of your article will suggest any method besides examination and inspection, by which this may be effected, we will gladly give it our earnest consideration.
