Revised A/L results discriminate Tamil students- CTTU

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 21 February 2006, 11:09 GMT]
Changes in the Advanced Level examination results announced by Sri Lanka's Department of Examinations have decreased the ranks obtained by Tamil medium candidates from the previously announced computerized results at national and district level thus depriving their chances of Tamil students to enter Medicine and Engineering, Mr.T.Mahasivam, president of the Ceylon Tamil Teachers Union (CTTU) said in a press release Tuesday. "Tamil medium students who have applied for university admission based on previous computerized results are now unable to apply under the revised results," the release said.

A student in Jaffna district who came second in the island in medicine in the earlier result has now been relegated to 8th position, education officials in Jaffna said.

Likewise several Tamil medium students who obtained marks to enter the university in the earlier computerized results have now been relegated to lower positions depriving them admission even at district level.

However Sinhala medium students who were placed in the lower positions in the earlier results have captured positions several steps ahead, said Mr.Mahasivam in his press release.

Tamil medium students and Tamil speaking people have now lost confidence on the Department of Examination because of discrimination against Tamil medium students through the revised Advanced Level results, CTTU statement further stated.
