Practical examinations of the GCE A / Level Fine Arts subjects are scheduled to begin today.
The Examinations Department said that practical examinations would be held till the 29th of this month.
However it was reported to our news team that certain A/L candidates had been informed to be present for practical examinations in two subjects within the same day.
A female student of the Anura Vidyaalaya in Matara has been informed to participate today in the practical examinations drama and theatrical Art and Music.
It is said the Examinations Department has informed that the practical examinations of the subject 'Drama and Theatrical Art' would be held at the Rohana Vidyaalaya in Matara and the Music practical examination would be held at St. Thomas' Boys' School.
She has been informed to come for the practical examinations on both
subjects at 9 a.m.
Our news team inquired about this from Education Minister Bandula Gunawardhana.
The Minister requested that the Examinations Commissioner be informed about this.
The Minister also requested further that the candidates participate in the practical examination of one subject after informing the examination department.
However although we tried to contact the examinations commissioner with regard to this our attempt proved futile.
