CEYLON TODAY | Published: 2:00 AM Nov 24 2020

The Ministry of Education has taken steps to conduct a survey to assess the extent to which the Grade 11 syllabus has been covered. 

The survey will be conducted through the teachers in charge of the relevant subjects.

The Secretary to the Ministry of Education Professor Kapila C. Perera said, they are conducting this survey to project dates in January 2021 for the holding of the GCE Ordinary Level Examination. He stated, although the educational activities of students have been hampered due to irregular conduct of schools during 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the teaching and learning process has been maintained at the provincial, regional, divisional and school level using online methods and using various electronic and printed techniques.

“But in the face of facilities available in schools in each province and the challenges they face, the ability of teachers to cover all subject units relevant to all Grade 11, may be at different levels. Therefore, the Ministry has taken steps to gain a broader understanding in this regard before taking further action,” he expressed.

In a statement issued in this regard, the Education Ministry stated, the teachers in charge of the subjects taught in Grade 11 in all schools should visit the website and provide the relevant information. This information should be provided within a week which commenced yesterday (23) and teachers should get into the website by entering their National Identity Card (NIC) number.

“If it is difficult for a teacher to access information, they can activate the relevant information by emailing to [email protected] including the name, the NIC number, the school, the Province, and the telephone number. It is hoped that the teachers in charge of the subject will include the correct information,” it said.

Prof. Perera, instructed all Provincial, Zonal and Divisional Directors of Education and Principals to regulate this process. (TR)
