Sri Lanka Commissioner General of Examinations says that NO decision has been taken to postpone the GCE Advanced Level Examination (GCE A/L Exam 2020) to be held in August. He further says this, rejecting the false claims made on social media that the A/L examination has been postponed.

Accordingly, the Commissioner General of Examinations stated that the A/L examination will be held in 2020 August as scheduled and requested the public not to be deceived by false statements. Relevant dates and subject timetable will be release in future dates. Students can download the A/L timetable from examination department official website once it released.

The Examinations Department issuing a statement stated that all certificates would only be issued online due to the current Coronavirus threat. Examination Department Commissioner General B. Sanath Pujitha said that due to the Coronavirus epidemic, entry into the Examination Department has been restricted  and all one day service and regular counters have been closed until further notice.

He further stated that those who had yet not applied for the 2020 GCE A/L examination and the Year 5 Scholarship Exam for 2020, could do so online as the deadline has been extended until March 31. Any inquiries in this regard could be obtained by calling the hotline 1911.
