  1. It is really unfair. Students have not complete their syllabus how can they face the exam in this sitution. Hope the exam to be postponed.

  2. This is a bad suggestion as many students have not yet completed their syllabus. Some people can learn by using the internet, but not everyone can. Sri Lanka is still a developing country. No houses, no phones, no computers. Many people in Sri Lanka these days have trouble accessing the internet but at least finding their own food. Please think of the children of this motherland humanely.

  3. It’s really unfair for us..students…we haven’t finished the syllabus even… especially science subjects … we founded the relevant notes hardly..and now we are copying those..but we have no idea about the parts … because those parts haven’t teached us.. not at the school even… there are quite alot in physics as well as in chemistry …so do biology too… for maths students.. this situation is also same…we hope the government will consider this matter fairly ….

  4. It’s really unfair for the 2020 first shy A/L students. As they haven’t finished their syllabus yet. Even the lessons in grade 13 are also not submitted to Internet and also it’s hard to find the subject materials during this season. So please be kind enough to inform the students about the papers as soon as possible as they can manage their studies with their gained subject knowledge and they can face the
    exam in August. Thank you

  5. Physics syllabus not yet completed it’s very hard to understand physics theories via zoom or other social medias electricity magnetic field, electronics, matter and radiation, prop and matter are remaining to finish for first shy students it’s very unfair it’s k to manage bio and chemistry

  6. Sir in this situation we are facing difficulty in studying(A/L STUDENTS). We have not yet covered the syllabus also. These period is our revision period. But in this situation it’s also cancelled. So please sir postpone our exam /or give RESULTS for us seeing our O/L RESULTS……….
    Sir how will PARENTS send their child to an exam hall consisting of 100+ students in this situation……
    Please give us a good response immediately.(Online studying is not success for all the students sir including me as well)…….

  7. I think it’s really good for all the students because the government too should think about our age and all. Related to other countries Advanced Level students in our countries are high in their age(19 yrs). So if exam is postponed it will be late for higher studies and even it will affect on our future job too. So i think the best solution is to hold the exam as possible in the given schedule. Thank you.
