* Sri Lanka teachers' union rejects Examination Commissioner's response on the issues in GCE/AL Economics paper
Fri, Aug 8, 2014, 09:19 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Aug 08, Colombo: An education sector union in Sri Lanka, Lanka Teacher Service Union today rejected the response of the Examination Commissioner regarding the G.C.E. (Advanced Level) Economics paper.

The union said that the swift response from the Examination Commissioner showed the irresponsibility.

The Examination Commissioner W.M.N.J. Pushpakumara said that the panel that compiled the question papers for Economics have probed the complaint and found that there were no errors in the papers.

The secretary of the Lanka Teacher Service Union Mahinda Jayasinghe said that the university academics were ready to show the problems in the paper before a panel of academics and the Examination Commissioner must take up the challenge.

He also pointed out that the panel that set the paper had failed to include single question from several units of the syllabus.

The union in a letter that was sent to the Examination Commissioner yesterday mentioned that the Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) 23,25,28,29 and 38 had errors and that the whole paper was set in a substandard manner that did not test the students' knowledge in the subject.
