* Sri Lankan students failing math to get relief from Education Minister
Wed, Jul 9, 2014, 10:39 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

July 09, Colombo: Sri Lanka Minister of Education Bandula Gunawardena said that he had submitted a cabinet paper seeking permission for the G.C.E. (Ordinary Level) candidates failing mathematics to continue education.

At a meeting held in Madampe area the Minister said that he had proposed to grant the students two years' time to pass mathematics while studying for G.C.E. (Advanced Level) examination.

This chance is granted for the students who have obtained three credits for subjects other than mathematics at the G.C.E. (Ordinary Level) exam.

Currently, the minimum qualification for continuing further studies to G.C.E. (Advanced Level) is three credits with six subjects passed including mathematics.

However, some schools provide opportunity for the students to study for Advanced Level on the condition of passing G.C.E. (Ordinary Level) mathematics within a year.

The rate of failure of mathematics at the G.C.E. (Ordinary Level) examination in Sri Lanka is very high.
