COLOMBO (News1st) : Sri Lanka’s exams chief has permitted the usage of normal calculators for certain subjects during the state Advanced Level exam.

“Scientific calculators won’t be allowed. We will only permit non programmable calculators,” Sanath Pujitha, the commissioner general of the examinations department told News1st.

He noted that calculators could be used by candidates sitting for the accounting, engineering technology, bio systems technology, and science for technology subjects.

“We hope to introduce this facility for the candidates of other state exams in future,” Pujitha noted.
