Selection to stay

Selection will stay with the decision of 30 of the grammar schools to establish a Company to administer a test. It will be based on the primary school curriculum and be free to children from lower income families. None of the Catholic grammars are among the 30 with only Lumen Christi indicating it will adopt an entrance test. If this situation remains, what impact will it have on the intake of the maintained and controlled sectors at secondary level?
