Ediacaran | 6 comments I probably read this book in the 1990s so I am assuming it was teen/young adult sci-fi/dystopian.

It started with a schoolboy graduating and sitting a test to determine his future social group. He thought he was going to be an Est (there was a rhyme "I'll be an Est because Ests are best, right down to their sodden wooly vests" or similar) but he got 100% and became a Tech which meant he actually got insight into the way his society worked.

I have a vague memory that he escaped something/somebody by running through a fence?
