Tue, Feb 12, 2013, 12:59 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 12, Colombo: Sri Lanka Minister of Bandula Gunawardena says the new subject stream Technology will be introduced to the General Certificate of Education (GCE) Advanced Level curriculum from May this year.

The students who are awaiting the results of the past G.C.E. Ordinary Level examination held in December 2012 can select this stream.

Minister Gunawardena has said that the government hopes to implement the new stream of study in at least one school in each of the 343 Divisional Secretariat Divisions in the country.

Presently, the GCE (A/L) students learn in science, arts, and commerce streams.

The proposed stream will include technical subjects such as information technology, electronics, civil and mechanical engineering, agriculture and food sciences to give the students a practical knowledge in preparation for employment after school education.

Universities are also planning now for the first intake of these students after the 2015 Advanced Level examination, the Minister says.
