No Grade 5 Scholarship & A/L exam this year?

The 'Irida Lankadeepa' newspaper reports that it will not be possible to hold the GCE Advanced Level examination and the Year 5 scholarship examination this year.

More than 800,000 students were to sit for these two examinations.

The Ministry of Education had previously decided to hold these two examinations in November this year, in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis.

However, a spokesman for the Ministry of Education has stated that it will not be possible to hold relevant examinations in November due to several factors.

The continuation of the Teachers & Principals strike for 69 days, the inability to cover the curriculum and Principals declining to accept applications are among these reasons, the spokesman had said.
