Term Definition

the process by which learners are admitted to an educational institution on the basis of criteria or standards usually in the form of an attainment test. It is widely practised in private schools but has not been in favour in the state system for some time although elements of it have been re-introduced in England. Tertiary education tends to use it as the norm.
