Ceylon Teachers Union CTU in Sri Lanka asks government to increase university admissions

Education sector trade union in Sri Lanka asks government to increase university admissions
A trade union affiliated to Sri Lanka's education sector has called on the government to increase the intake of students into state universities.
The Ceylon Teacher's Union (CTU) has urged the government to admit as many students as possible to the universities from students who have passed the GCE Advanced Level examination in 2012.
CTU General Secretary, Joseph Stalin has pointed out that students who sat for the GCE A/Level examination in 2012 should have been admitted to universities in June 2013, which has not yet happened.
He has charged that the Higher Education Ministry was trying to promote private universities in the country without admitting students to local universities.

According to Stalin, higher education authorities need to address the issues faced by students and the cut off mark for university admission should be released.

    1. You may be so intelligent. But not as intelligent as to understand that there are many those who are qualified, yet not admitted to a university. So, so called intelligent people like you think that, there should be no private university. Government, with its huge corruption and waste, cannot afford free tertiary education for all those who qualify. Those who can pay 20-30 million enter into globally recognized universities. So it is essential to have private universities with high academic standards to cater students deprived of university education. Don’t be selfish. Let us make use of the free opportunity and let others also to do their studies. You may question so what will happen to those who cannot afford these? Let’s imagine there is only one bus (there is no way of getting two buses) and there are two bus routes, hundreds of miles apart from each other. Each route needs a bus. So what would you do if you have to decide the route the bus is going to occupy? Are you going to keep the bus without using just because people in the other route don’t get a bus??? Now substitute ‘bus’ with ‘private universities’, ‘people getting the bus’ with ‘those who can afford’ and ‘people who don’t’ with ‘those who cannot afford’.
      So don’t be selfish and don’t be fooled by political tricks.

  20. what was the reason for get low z score [1.74 - 1.79] for A2B [ in 2012 AL if any one knows can you tell the reason [MATHS STREAM]

    ReplyDelete

    1. I have A,2C and an Z score of 1.2722 maths steam.
      So don't worry. The z scores are lower for everyone this year than previous ones.
      Your z score can be higher if u have more marks for chemistry and maths. The A in physics won't give much z score because the paper was considerably easy.
