July 24, Colombo: The University Grants Commission (UGC) has decided to grant another opportunity from next Monday for the applicants to submit applications for admission to universities based on the results of the 2020 Advanced Level Examination.
UGC chairman, Senior Professor Sampath Amaratunga said the decision was taken due to the inability of some students to apply to universities during the period of travel restrictions.
The deadline to apply for university admissions ended on June 18.
Senior Professor Sampath Amaratunga said the students should submit applications online during the period from Monday, July 26th to July 30th.
He added that students who apply within the relevant period will be given another two weeks to reschedule their university or course if they wish to do so.
