Mon, Sep 3, 2012, 10:31 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Sept 03, Colombo: The Examinations Commissioner of Sri Lanka says that results of the Grade 5 scholarship examination would be released only after the conclusion of the current investigations.

An investigation is currently ongoing over allegations that the scholarship examination papers have been leaked prior to the exam.

Examinations Commissioner W. M. Pushpakumara has said that 22 complaints have been received over alleged irregularities with the Grade 5 scholarship examination and they have been forwarded to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) for investigation.

He has added that examination results would not be released until the investigations concluded.

According to the Commissioner, issues over examination papers are created by private tutors.

He has explained that the Department sets examination papers from the school curriculum while the private tutors teach outside the curriculum and that they get annoyed when questions they have taught their students are not included in the examination papers.

Pushpakumara has said that he would take steps together with the assistance of parents to stop private tuition classes in the country within two years.
