The Chairman of the University Grants Commission, Prof. Sampath Amaratunga stated that the cut-off marks will be added to the Grants Commission's official website www.ugc.ac.lk  this afternoon (26).

Speaking further, he added that 41,500 students will be able to enter State universities this time.

He noted that the number of students that will be enrolled for medical, engineering and other faculties will be increased as well.

The UGC Chair stated that several factors such litigation, coronavirus epidemic as well as staff limitations at the UGC have contributed to the delay in the issuance of Z-score cut-off marks for the 2019 Advanced Level Examination.

A case was filed before the Supreme Court in relation to allocation of places for courses of study between the students who applied for University admission under New and Old Syllabi based on the results of the GCE (A/L) Examination held in 2019.
