Feb 22, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) says that students sitting for the Law College entrance examination are faced with great difficulty due to the decision to change the syllabus of the law entrance examination just six months prior to the examination.
JVP parliamentary group leader, Anura Kumara Dissanayake has told parliament that attention needed to be paid to the plight of students sitting for the law entrance examination due to the sudden decision to change the syllabus.
He has noted that while around 8,000 students sit for the Law College entrance examination, only around 225 get to enter the College.
Law College has announced that the entrance subjects and syllabus for the entrance examination to be held in August 2013 has been changed posing a great problem to the students who are already engaged in preparing for the examination this year, Dissanayake has explained.
According to Dissanayake, the changes to the law entrance examination has to be carried out in a manner that would not badly impact on any students sitting the examination and that the changes should not be done in a hurry.
