International School Students can do G.C.E (A/L) at Government Schools

A circular, which permits principals of State Schools to admit international and private school students who had successfully completed their GCE O/L to do their GCE A/L will be issued this week putting an end to the uncertainty and heated arguments on this matter, a senior source of the Education Ministry said.

This comes in the wake of a directive from President Mahinda Rajapaksa to Education Minister Bandula Gunawardana This comes in the wake of a directive from President Mahinda Rajapaksa to Education Minister Bandula Gunawardana directing him to issue the relevant circular as soon as possible after this matter was raised at last week’s cabinet meeting.

They argued that to ban a section of the students from obtaining free education in the national education system was a violation of their fundamental rights and the violation of the constitution.

The source said the withdrawal of a circular prohibiting the admission of private school students to government schools for their GCE A/L did not arise because the Education Ministry had not issued such a circular in the first place.
