COLOMBO (News1st): Sri Lanka’s exams chief has said a reasonable decision will be made considering this year’s advanced level exams, as schools remained shut due to COVID-19.
“The authorities together with the Ministry of Education will make a decision that is fair by the students,” Sanath Pujitha, the commissioner general of examinations said during a programme aired on Sirasa TV on Friday.
The exams chief stressed that schools will require more time to complete the syllabus if they cannot re-open by May or June.
“A fair examination can only be conducted if these criteria are met,” he said.
Pujitha noted that 364,761 students will sit for the examination this year which has been scheduled for August.
All schools and universities have remained closed as part of efforts to stem the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
