Secretary to the Ministry of Higher Education, Doctor Sunil Jayantha Navarathna says that the islandwide and district rankings issued following the release of the GCE Advanced Level Examination results, have been cancelled.
The Advanced Level results which were released late last night contain errors in the calculation of district and island ranks.
There have been many reports from the different parts of the country that even the Z score and the results of certain students are erroneous. The Examination ministry previously stated that on the rankings were inaccurate. Some students allege that they have recieved results for subjects they werent candidates for during the examinations held in August.
The Inter University Students Federation (IUSF) urged the public not to accept Advanced Level results which were released on Sunday (25) and called on the government to evaluate it once again.
Convening a media briefing at the Kelaniya University, the convener of the IUSF Sanjeewa Bandara told that more than 100 students had spoken to them alleging that the Advanced Level results issued on Sunday contained errors in rankings, results that were issued and the Z score marks that were allocated .
UNP Colombo District Parliamentarian Sujeewa Senasinghe speaking to a news paper online today said that the Minister of Higher Education should resign forthwith due to the fiasco surrounding the Advanced Level results. “In a country that is governed by sound principles the Minister in charge would resign immediately, the Advanced Level exam is a turning point in any child's life and it is the future of these children that the authorities are playing with,” he said.
