President Mahinda Rajapakse has informed Higher Education Minister S B Dissanayaka to provide a comprehensive report on the Z score calculations of the last GCE A/L examinations immediately.

Allegations were levelled against the usage of a common calculation method for students who sat the exam under the old and new syllabus.

Subsequently the Supreme Court ordered for the old and new syllabus z scores to be re-calculated separately based on a petition filed by a group of students and the Lanka Teacher’s Association.

The re-calculated z scores were issued last Sunday but have also raised many questions.

President Mahinda Rajapakse has called for the immediate report owing to this.
