Jan 13, Colombo: Students who have sat for the Law College entrance examination in Sri Lanka have filed a complaint with the Human Rights Commission (HRC) against the Examination Department.
The students have stated that the Examinations Department had failed to investigate into the alleged leaking of the 2013 law entrance examination paper.
The Law Entrance Students Union has said that legal action would also be initiated against the Examinations Department.
The union has stated that it had not received a proper response when the union had inquired from the Examinations Department about the investigation into the 2013 law examination.
Spokesperson of the union Ramzi Bacha has noted that the union was not yet informed of an investigation and re-correction of the 2013 law entrance examination papers as promised by the Examinations Department.
According to law entrance students, the law entrance results had shown that preference had been given to some ethnic groups over others.
According to the Young Lawyers' Association of Sri Lanka out of 705 Tamil medium students who took the law exam 133 students have received entry while only 154 students have been selected from a total of 6,295 who took the exam in the Sinhala medium. Also the top marks have been earned by the Muslim students.
