This article deals with the issue of individual differences and the common curriculum for 12-16 year old pupils. The central question is: is it possible to maintain high standards for all without reducing opportunities for brighter pupils to achieve educational results according to their individual potential? To answer this question, three research traditions are examined: research about the West-German comprehensive schools; research about class composition; research about effective teaching and Aptitude Treatment Interaction. The conclusion from this examination is that it is difficult to combine high standards for all and excellence for a few.
