CAMBRIDGE LOCAL EXAMINATION RESULTS PUBLISHED 11 SEPTEMBER 1925
At CREDITON GRAMMAR SCHOOL (boys only until 1966), the following candidates were successful in the Summer Examinations of 1925 - the names of unsuccessful candidates were not made known. The Pass Rate for this session of Cambridge Examinations is not known.
To gain a full certificate, candidates had to pass five or more subjects including Maths and English. However if they failed Maths and English, all subjects had to be re-taken. Repeat examinations were held in the following January for re-take students.
In each subject, there were three levels of success - Pass, Credit and Very Good. Students gaining Credit level or higher in at least five subjects were granted exemption from Matriculation, meaning that they could by-pass a University's own admission examination. To pass the School Certificate examination with Honours you had to achieve a Credit or a Very Good standard in every one of your subjects.
