The Court also ordered the UGC to comply with the Universities Act and to take steps to calculate the Z-Scores on the basis that the Old Syllabus and the New Syllabus were distinct from each other.

Chief Justice Shirani A.Bandaranayake with Justices N.G. Amaratunga and K. Sripavan agreeing also ordered the UGC to take steps to re-issue the Z-Scores to the candidates who sat the 2011 GCE A/L Examination  after correcting the errors and shortcomings and to do so without delay.

The Court said it was not within the purview of this application to correct the validity of the results that had been released with regard to the 2011 GCE A/L examination and in the absence of any valid material the Court would not interfere with the results of this exam.

It said that because the UGC had treated the two categories of students who sat the examination under a single section the UGC had violated the petitioners’ fundamental rights to equality and equal protection of the law.

Sixteen GCE A/L students and the Ceylon Teachers’ Union filed the fundamental rights violation petition citing Examinations Chief W.M.N.J. Pushpakumara, Education Minister Bandula Gunawardene, Peradeniya University Professor R.O. Thattil and the Attorney General as respondents.(SSS)

    Very good judgement

    What will those esteemed govt. officials who swore there was nothing wrong with the results do now? 10 months have gone by, and the proper results have not yet been released- the UGC is trying very hard to become the"Miracle of Asia".

    Miracle of Asia indeed!

    So many poor students paid money and applied for recorrections. The government must refund those monies.

    Prasad Monday, 25 June 2012 05:42 AM

    Excellent decision. You cannot do blunders and escape. Justice prevail. Students and parents should claim damages from the UGC & DO Examinations for the agony they faced during the last few months.

    Village Boy Monday, 25 June 2012 05:44 AM

    WOW

    Sapumal Bandara Monday, 25 June 2012 05:49 AM

    Pity the students and the helpless parents!
    This is a huge blunder. The Education Minister must take total responsibility and resign immediately.
    Stop the blame game. Keep petty politics out of education.

    me Monday, 25 June 2012 05:51 AM

    good move

    riya Monday, 25 June 2012 05:48 AM

    vry gud judgement but expecting the new z-scores

    Prasannajit Monday, 25 June 2012 05:44 AM

    What would those two jokers SB and Bandula say now?

    Sapumal Bandara Monday, 25 June 2012 05:49 AM

    High time the public stood-up against this nonsense. Higher education is not the grandmothers property of a few politicians of this country.

    N. Amarasekara Tuesday, 26 June 2012 07:16 AM

    i think never change student's re-correction result.

    Dalu banda Monday, 25 June 2012 05:51 AM

    That means the "Kos" and "pol" will not add together

    Chami Tuesday, 26 June 2012 07:27 AM

    All responsible persons must understand how hard to study for A/L and sit for exam. Please think about thmentalities of students afer this judment.

    kvk Tuesday, 26 June 2012 09:48 AM

    where is re-correction results?????????? will it release without any delay??

    Wadduwage Tuesday, 26 June 2012 12:55 AM
