The Examinations Department stated that the 2011 GCE Advanced Level Examination Z-score results have been released a short while ago and can be obtained via the website, www.doenets.lk,
The Supreme Court on June 25th ordered the University Grants Commission to annul z-score calculation and to recalculate for old and new syllabus separately, after taking up a fundamental rights petition filed by a group of A/L students and the Ceylon Teachers’ Union.
Accordingly the new results could be obtained by students by typing in their
examination serial number on the web site.
Around 44,000 students sat the last years GCE Advanced level examination
under both new & old syllabuses.
The supreme courts ruling on this regard was issued on the 25th last month.
Subsequently the Ceylon teachers union filed a motion requesting for the expedient processing of revised Z score values.
As a result the Examination Department notified court that steps would be taken to release the revised results prior to the 25th of this month.
Meanwhile a special announcement has been posted on the web site of the examinations department.
The announcement notes that students who sat last years GCE Advanced Level Examinations under both new & old syllabuses would be presented with a special opportunity to sit this year's advanced level examinations.
Further details in this regard could be obtained via the hot line 1911.
Meanwhile Chief Secretary of the Ceylon Teachers Union Joseph Stallin states
that since this years GCE Advanced level examination would be held in less than two weeks, it leaves insufficient time for students to prepare for the examination.
Stallins comments came with regards to students who plan on re-sitting this year's GCE Advanced level Examinations subsequent to last years z score issue.
