The Department of Examinations has taken steps to introduce an easy method for Special Needs students when sitting for examinations.
Examinations Commissioner N J K Pushpakumara told our news team that steps would be taken to introduce this easy method from this year.
Accordingly under this method students with any disability will be provided special facilities according to their request.
The student or his guardian should make a written request with regard to this before sitting for the examination.
The Examinations Commissioner said that according to requests action would be taken at district level.
This system will be effective from year five scholarship to the GCE A/Level.
The examinations department has decided to introduce this new system after a study of differently abled students who faced examinations in past years.
