Sir: I passed my 11-plus, along with one girl in my school, in 1965 ("Is selection good for kids?" 29 March). The day the results were published our names changed to "Snob" and we were ostracised by our classmates for the remainder of the school year. Ever since then I have held an unshakeable belief that there must be a better way.
