Mr Malcolm Fraser (WANNON, VICTORIA) - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(2)   The following table shows the number of of Bachelor degree courses expressed as a percentCommonwealth University scholars in the first year age of new bachelor degree students:'"

 

NOTES -

(a)   The number of new bachelor degree students is compiled by the Commonwealth Statistician. For the years 1962-1967 the number included all students who had enrolled at a particular university for the first time. Since 1968 the number included all students who had enrolled for the first time at an Australian University. This change does not effect significantly the comparability of the percentages shown above.

(b)   1967 was an abnormal year because the 5 year Secondary course was replaced by a 6 year one.
