The public examination system in countries like UK and Australia are constantly suffering from the problem of compatibility, between different examinations in the same subject and also different subject combinations set by different boards of examination, especially in GCE A- Level examinations. In any examination students are allowed to select fixed number of subjects for their examination. In order to select students by ranking the student performances who offered different sets of subjects suffer subject comparable problems because some subjects are easy relative to the other subjects and inadvertently some students will get unfair advantage over selection for higher education or for employment. This paper explains, how to apply CCI method to select students from two parallel examinations using a simple data set. It is concluded that the top most students in the combinations are selected by this method. Keywords - Public Examinations, CCI method, Comparable Problems, Parallel, combination of subjects.
