COLOMBO (News 1st): The practical exams of the 2020 GCE Ordinary Level Examination have been suspended, the Department of Examinations said on Saturday (Feb. 06).

The 2020 GCE O/L Examination is scheduled to begin on the 1st March 2021.

“An alternative method will be made available to award marks to students for aesthetic subjects, despite the suspension of the practical examinations,” Sanath Pujitha, the Commissioner-General of Examinations told News 1st.

According to Sanath Pujitha, under school-based assessment, the marks obtained by students for aesthetic subjects at the three-term tests in Grade 10 and two-term tests in Grade 11, should be forwarded to the Department of Examination.

The circulars containing the relevant instructions in this regard were issued to all principals and zonal education directors, Sanath Pujitha further added.
