Sri Lankan University No Additional Intake for 2012/2013

Sri Lankan Higher Education Ministry would not be able to admit extra number of students for 2012/2013 Academic year.
Higher Education Ministry Secretary Dr. Sunil Jayantha Navaratne said that UGC had decided to admit an additional 5,609 students to universities following a Supreme Court for 2011/2012 but it couldn’t be continued thereafter without improving necessary facilities.
The Supreme Court ordered the UGC to admit an additional 5,609 students to universities after solving the ‘Z-score’ crisis. Due to this additional intake, about 27,000 students would be admitted to Sri Lankan Universities based on the GCE (A/L) results 2011. It was a 25 per cent increase.

However, Inter University Students’ Federation (IUSF), have been insisting that the increased intake be continued for the 2012 A/L batch as well.
Convener of the IUSF Sanjeewa Bandara said that according to GCE (A/L) results released last Wednesday, over 6,500 candidates obtained 3As in the commerce stream, but normally less than 5,000 students from that stream were admitted to universities annually.
“During previous years, even those who obtained two As and one B could enter university, whereas this year, it seems even those who have got three As will not be able to enter a state university due to restrictions on admissions,” he said.
