Special A/L examination centre at IDH

Twelve special examination centres have been arranged for the candidates sitting for the G.C.E. Advanced Level Examination in areas under the quarantine Curfew, Examinations Department Commissioner General Sanath Pujitha said.

A total of 362,824 candidates will sit for the A-L Examination, which is to begin today, at over 2600 examination centers islandwide.

Speaking to the Daily News today the Commissioner General said a special centre has also been set up at the National Institute of Infectious Diseases (IDH) as two students are currently undergoing treatment at this hospital.

The rest of the special centres have been put up in the Gampaha District for the students in the curfew imposed areas so that they do not have to travel out of the district.

The Commissioner General said the students, who are undergoing self-quarantine at home in any district, are requested to report to the nearest examination centre, adding that separate rooms would be allocated for such students within the centre.

It has been made compulsory for all students to follow health guidelines such as wearing a mask, washing hands and maintaining social distance throughout the examination period.
