Cut off marks of Year - 5 Scholarship for several schools were not given - Teacher Associations go to Court
Lanka Teacher Service Association vehemently protests against the failure to release the Year 5 Scholarship cut off marks for several leading schools in the country.
Association Secretary Mahinda Jayasinghe said that cut off marks for Richmond College Galle, Rahula College Matara, Isipathana and Ashoka Vidyalaya’s in Colombo have not been released along with the cut off marks of the other schools.
When our news team contacted Director of the School Activities of the Education Department W.K.N. Wijetunga admitted the non-release of cut off marks for these schools.
Wijetunga further said that less than 45 students will be admitted to these schools therefore the cut off marks for these schools were not released.
He also said that a certain number of students have been referred to these schools without taking cut off marks into consideration.
