The "General Certificate of Education 'Ordinary' Level Examination", otherwise known as the "GCE 'O' Level" or the "O Levels" is the examination taken by students of Secondary Education in the United Kingdom, Commonwealth countries or regions associated with the British curriculum.

The "GCE 'O' Level" in theUnited Kingdom is replaced by the "General Certificate of Secondary Education" (abbreviated "GCSE") in 1988. However, many Commonwealth countries and some British schools still retain the "GCE 'O' Level" through the examining boards of the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), American Council for Higher Education and Edexcel International.

Therefore, in 1969, the primary examination was the "GCE 'O' Level" as the "GCSE" was only implemented in 1988.
