The Examination Department today announced the date of holding the GCE Ordinary Level Examination in December for the year 2019.
Commissioner General of Examinations B. Sanath Pujitha said the examination would be held from December 2 to 12 at 4,987 centres with 541 coordinating centres countrywide.
“All preparations for the examination were set and a total of 717,008 students will sit for the examination. 433,050 school applicants and 282,958 private applicants will appear,” the Commissioner said.
He requested all students should bring with them a valid national identity card (NIC), a valid passport or a valid driver’s licence for the purpose of identification before entering the examination hall.
