Sri Lanka University Appeals before October 20

University entry applicants are given time till October 20 to submit their Appeals for admission to State-run universities, says UGC Chairman.

Students those who have issues and problems with University Entrance, Z Scores and Aptitude Tests can get further details from below mentioned Telephone numbers.

Don’t hesitate to call them and get expert advice to your problems. They are very friendly and will solve your all problems.

Also students should send an appeal to the UGC in written. Students should forward a written appeal to the UGC along with the documentary evidence in support of the appeal. A photocopy of the appeal application form in the UGC admission handbook could be used as the appeal format. Appeal should be forwarded to the UGC before October 20.


University Grants Commission (UGC) Chairman, Prof. Mohan de Silva said that 1,200 appeal cases have been submitted thus far, by university entry applicants, which are to be reviewed by the UGC according to the new admission and appeal reviewing procedures mentioned in the guide book provided to the students, prior to beginning of the admission process.
In the Guide Book provided to the students, students are requested to apply for maximum 125 Uni-codes out of 250 available codes, as given in the book, when selecting a university and undergraduate according to UGC Chairman.
He added that such applications were rejected at the admission process, failing to grant a suitable university or undergraduate course according to the results obtained by the student.
Students tend to apply for universities without refer- ring to the guide book and include a less number of universities, under the assumption that the process would be the same as before, however, the new admission procedure requires the student to provide the requested number of uni-codes to grant university admission, he said.
Therefore, students were disqualified as they had not included the uni-codes in the university entry application, even though they are qualified to enter a different university under the same undergraduate course or to a different course.
He said that the appeal process is set to grant vacancies to appellants after providing available vacancies in universities and undergraduates to initial applicants, since the appellants have failed to follow the entry process as mentioned in the guidelines provided in the book.

Also, students are not allowed to alter undergraduate courses after admission to the university. For example, students admitted for Veterinary Sciences are not permitted to switch to Dental Sciences, he added.
