School children will be required to decide their stream of study for the Advanced Level Examination at Grade 9, instead of waiting till they get their Ordinary Level Examination results from 2013 onwards, Minister Bandula Gunawardane said today.

Minister Gunwardane told the Daily Mirror that the Ministry would announce the decision to the police in this regard next year. In this respect, he said, students have to study six core subjects and three optional subjects related to their chosen stream of study for the Advanced Level Examination. (Kelum Bandara)

    A sensitive policy change in deed. Up until O/L everyone study what is rather useful in many aspects. Literature, History etc. even though most find boring compared to more analytical subjects like Maths and Science, pave a path to a complete 'person'. Many students may bandwagon to skip them aiming science streams. Obvious question would be what alternative system will provide if one flunks the first choice stream at O/L exam.

    Why inform the Police of this decision.....arrest the students who don't have the required number of subjects?

    That means A/L going to be a O/L.OHEYPALLAH...

    This is not at all a good move. We are trying to follow unsuccessful western education systems. It's a well established phenomena that every student should have some knowledge in science and mathematics. These idiots should look in to the situation in the US that great majority of people don't have basic mathematics and science knowledge. Indians and Sri Lankans dominated in these western markets because of the basic knowledge they have.
    We should not let these idiotic politicians to make the situation worst.
