The University of East Anglia has featured as the backdrop in a new campaign video for Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
The video, posted on Wednesday, shows a woman speaking about the impact the 11-plus exam had on her life.
The footage shows the Norwich university's distinctive ziggurats and teaching block in the background.
In the video, the woman said: 'I was the only one out of the friendship group I had in primary school who didn't pass the 11-plus.
'I had no concept of segregation at the age of 11, it was very alien to me.

'It was like I turned 10 and all of a sudden this bright and able little girl was replaced with someone who was just stupid and not good enough to be their friend.'
She said the effects of selective education 'can't be underestimated' and that nobody 'has the right to tell a little child that they aren't good enough or they're not clever enough'.
