Examinations Commissioner General Sanath Poojitha says that the examinations department is obliged to act in a manner that is just and fair towards all candidates.

Issuing a communique the examinations chief says that his department is legally bound to do so.

He stated that when results are released, revealing the names of candidates with the highest marks in each subject stream is done so to encourage them. 

The examinations commissioner stated that accordingly, it is compulsory for the name of the female student who obtained the highest marks for the  GCE A/L arts stream who happened to be from an international school to be announced .

it would be unfair and a violation of her rights if her acumen was ignored because of the institution she received her education at.

The communiqué further noted that the student had included the name and address of the school in the address section of the application and accordingly the respective information was reported.

there have been previous instances where, private candidates had obtained ranks.

The commissioner general of examinations said, relating to university admissions , the status of a student, whether a school or private candidate is disregarded.

The commissioner general stated that this year, as has been the case in past years, the proper mechanism had been implemented
