Govt. rejects appeal to hold SLEAS examination in NorthEast

[TamilNet, Monday, 06 February 2006, 16:44 GMT]
Sri Lanka's Commissioner General of Examinations Monday rejected an appeal made by the Ceylon Tamil Teachers Union (CTTU) to postpone the Limited Competitive Examination of Sri Lanka Education Administrative Service Class III scheduled to be held only in Colombo on February 11 for a later date and also to take immediate steps to hold the examination in the northeast province to make it easy for the Tamil medium candidates to take the exams, sources said.

CTTU made the appeal for the postponement of the examination as Tamil medium teachers and principals in the northeast have not prepared for the examination due to tense situation that prevailed in the province since December last year. CTTU also made a case for holding the examination for the NE applicants in the province itself as the current security situation in Colombo is not conducive for the Tamil medium teachers and principals to travel and find lodging facilities in the capital, sources said

The Department of Examinations said, it is not in a position to postpone the examination and also to hold it for Tamil medium candidates in the northeast as necessary arrangement has been finalized to hold the examination in Colombo only, sources said.

About thirty thousand candidates are expected to sit for this examination, which is to be held on February 11 in Colombo, sources said.
