The values are send though the form the default method is get

so in this case you would do on b.php

<select name= "gettest">
<option value = "1" <?=($_GET["test"]==1?"selected":"")?>>1</option>
<option value = "2" <?=($_GET["test"]==2?"selected":"")?>>2</option>
<option value = "3" <?=($_GET["test"]==3?"selected":"")?>>3</option>
</select>

if you use the post method you would do $_POST["test"] instead of $_GET

<?=($_GET["test"]==1?"selected":"")?> is a if statement another way to write it would be

<? if($_GET["test"]==1) {

echo "selected";
} ?>
