A school in Birmingham which placed an advert in the press offering mock exams representative of entrance exams to local grammar schools has been criticised by the advertising watchdog.
The Advertising Standards Agency said that unless Tudor House School in Hall Green could provide evidence to substantiate the claim, then it should be withdrawn.
Objections were raised by management at The King Edward Foundation in Birmingham who said neither they nor the suppliers of their exam papers had made past practice exam papers available.
The King Edward Foundation also complained that the advert suggested that by paying £5,000 for tuition, parents could secure their child a place at grammar school.
This complaint was not upheld by the ASA who said they thought readers would realise the payment was for tuition.
