Senator COHEN - I ask the Minister in charge of Commonwealth Activities in Education and Research whether he is aware of widespread dissatisfaction, especially in Victoria, at the method of awarding Commonwealth scholarships to pupils undertaking Leaving and Matriculation studies. Is it a fact that many educationists believe that Commonwealth scholarships should be awarded on the result of the year's studies and not on the basis of any special examination for selection or exclusion? Is the Government prepared to review this matter so that a mature judgment may be formed as to the proper method of selection to be used at the end of 1965?
