Peter Robinson has promised his support for efforts to bring about a single transfer test next year the Belfast Telegraph has reported.
Speaking yesterday, Mr Robinson predicted that academic selection was here to stay but a single test should replace the current two.
Mr Robinson's party is committed to selection. He lambasted the Department of Education, which has had three Sinn Fein ministers since it was set up in 1999, for failing to accommodate the wishes of the grammar schools.
