Education Ministry yet to decide dates for A/L and scholarship exams

The dates of the Grade Five Scholarship Examination and the GCE Advanced Level (A/L) examination are yet to be
decided, said Secretary to the Ministry of Education N.H.M. Chithrananda.

He further said that it is not yet possible to make a decision on the dates of the two examinations and that perhaps
by the end of this month they will be able to make a decision.

Schools have been closed for nearly two months following the Covid-19 outbreak in the country and even the dates
for the reopening of schools have not been announced yet by the Ministry of Education.
