Sri Lanka University Academic Year 2014/2015
Minister of University Education Lakshman Kiriella says Sri Lanka government hopes to release 2015 A/L Z-score cut off marks for university entrance during August month.

In response to a question raised by JVP MP Bimal Ratnayake in Parliament today, Minister Lakshman Kiriella said several rounds of discussions have taken place in this regard and hope to release as soon as possible.
During the parliamentary session, MP Ratnayake said the Ministry of Education should consider releasing the 2015 GCE Advance Level Examination Z-score cut-off marks for respective universities and faculties before the commencement of the 2016 A/L exams.
He said it could help students hoping to sit for the examination for the second or third attempt to make an informed decision.
The JVP Parliamentarian noted the early release of 2015 Z-score cut-off marks will reduce the number of duplicate application for universities.

RanaViruMeetup Season 2 Registration Form


First RanaViruMeetup happened on 25th July 2015. We are going to visit our war heroes again on 23rd July 2016.
It's been 7+ years now since the end of war in Sri Lanka.
We all know and have seen the suffering that most of us Sri Lankans had to go through.
Let's help those that need our assistance.

About 'Rana Viru Sevana' in Ragama, Sri Lanka (Brief intro):

A dedicated facility to look after the rehabilitation of soldiers. 3 wards with over 100 disabled soldiers who are looked after on a daily basis. They enjoy meeting the public that like to have a chat with them and also give a smile with an entertainment act. A small act from public can go a long way to bring happiness to these brave souls who had given their all to the well being of our country.

What is needed from public:
We are yet to fully finalise the items to be bought but they have tentatively mentioned about the need to get 'Motivation wheel chairs' which cost close to Rs 30,000 each. They need 35 such. We are looking at providing them with 20 such and therefore this time we are looking at collecting Rs 600,000 to fulfill this target.

We will use the cash donations we collect and then buy these items. If you are able to donate, please see the below bank details:
Bank: Sampath Bank
Branch: Colombo Super

In addition to the item donations, it is possible to allocate time to give them a few entertainment acts (few songs, dances, magic acts etc...) to put a smile on their faces. Time will also be available in the visit to personally talk to them and hear their stories from the war that we have only heard or read in papers.
