Faults found in Advance level economics question paper.-Video
Senior lecturer of Ruhuna University’s Economic Study Unit Nandasiri Keembiya Hetti says that there are shortcomings in the GCE Advanced Level Economics question paper this year.
Keembiya Hetti is among the 39 university teachers who put their signatory to a petition sent to the Examination Commissioner General against the removal of three professors from the A/L question paper making panel.
Meanwhile Lanka Teacher Services Association also wrote today to the Examination Commissioner General about the shortcomings of the A/Level Economics question paper.
The teacher association pointed out the minister’s political blunder which removed Professor Dani Atapattu from the Economic Question Paper making panel is the main reason for the faults.
Ruhuna University Senior lecturer Nandasiri Keembiya Hetti said question numbers 23, 25, 33, 38 and 46 of the multi choice question paper are faulted.
He further said question numbers 5 and 6 of the second part are also faulted.
Senior Lecturer Keembiya Hetti said this year’s Economics question paper is not prepared to balance its relevant syllabus.
The letter sent to the Examination Commissioner General with 39 signatures of university lecturers stated, for the first time in its history, the preparation of Economic question paper was tasked on the Management Faculty.
The significance of this matter is that all 39 signatories to this letter have participated as chief inspectors of Advanced Level question paper marking.
Our news team made several attempts to contact the Examination Commissioner General on his mobile phone intending to obtain his comment on the allegations.
However our attempts were failed as the Examination Commissioner General did not answer.
