The Inter University Students Federation (IUSF) today expressed their concern over an alleged abnormality in the 2012 G.C.E. A/L results, claiming that the results are indicating signs of a possible complication in university entrance that could pave way to the promotion of private universities.

IUSF Convener Sanjeewa Bandara speaking to Daily Mirror online said, the pass rate of commerce stream this year has increased quite abnormally and there are close to 4000 candidates who have obtained 3As in the commerce stream. During previous years, even those who obtained two As and one B could enter university whereas this year, it seems even those who have three As will not be able to enter a state university due to restrictions in admissions.” (LP)

    if those who can afford goes to private universities, there will be room in government universities for those who cannot spend for private education. what's this silly fuss about private universities ? there are enough private hospitals but free healthcare still exists. via DM Android App

    Nowadays Examinations results are also like Elections results,
    they are built up by politicians as they want.

    Private or public, students go to universities to gain more knowledge. Students leaving private universities are more intelligent, decent and polite than free educated ones.

    University admission is not based on the letter of the grade. It is based on the z-score.

    Restrictions and limited capacity in the state universities is the very reason,that good private universities should be established and promoted. Higher education should not be limited to a handful. If limited it is purely for selfish reasons of some those who could enter state universities.

    Ravi Perera Sunday, 03 February 2013 05:31 AM

    Formation of private universities will pave the way for lot of students to get higher education.
    These people get free university education, so does not value it. At the end it will be the country which will get benifitted if we initiate private universities in SL. Like you study in local universities free of charge, why not other students get the opportunity, by having private universities????

    It is still difficult to get A''s in Combined Mathematics stream subjects. Therefore UGC must ensure that students who get B's from the Colombo District also will get a chance to enter the Engineering Faculty. According to the 55% District Basis system students from the Colombo District who get B's cannot enter the Engineering faculty.

    Exactly. That's why you need private universities (but with good standards) in this country. All over the world in other countries private universities are there and in fact most of the top rates colleges around the world are private universities. So what's wrong? This inter student union is driven by JVPers who killed so many young people in this country and they have no right to talk here.

    Demotion of state education is done through the state. There are huge quality assurance issues in state universities as well as in private sector, but quality concerns come in two different forms. However, education as a service delegated to private sector is yet another move similar to privatization of health, agriculture, leisure, transport etc that limit avenues of the poorer and giving an undue advantage to the wealthy. All this is done to meet conditions of the WB and IMF etc against public interest to meet the interests of the investors in WB and IMF.

    Exam results went up while the standard of the exams went down.
