Examination papers to arrive via sea route

[TamilNet, Saturday, 31 July 1999, 20:59 GMT]
Stationery and question papers for the GCE Advanced Level to the areas held by the LTTE will be sent tomorrow from Mannar via a sea route, said sources.

This action has been taken after officials in Trincomalee and Colombo requested the UNHCR officials in Colombo and Vavuniya to get in touch with the UNHCR officials in Mallavi to obtain the consent of the LTTE to transport the papers to the Vanni as soon as possible, sources connected to the Department of Examination said.

Officials in Vavuniya and Mannar said today that the papers have been transferred to Mannar from Vavuniya escorted by the UNHCR officials, and arrangements have been made in Mannar to transport them by sea in specially arranged boats early tomorrow morning.

The papers were lying in Vavuniya for more than a week without transport arrangements.

Sources said that if the papers were not sent today it would be difficult to hold the nation-wide competitive examination, the results of which determines the limited number of students who qualify to enter the Universities in the country.
