    Danu Friday, 20 December 2013 04:38 AM

    Central College Kuliyapitiya is the best.We are centralians forever

    Goofy Tuesday, 17 December 2013 03:35 PM

    In the 1960 Ananda was the leading school in Sri Lanka excelling in studies. What a sad story now. Even the big match had be abandoned due to poor crowd behaviour and worse, tear gassed .

    Sugan Tuesday, 17 December 2013 03:37 PM

    The names of many Tamil medium schools are mistaken. There is no Hartley vidyalaya or Jaffna Hindu Vidyalaya but Hartley College and Jaffna Hindu College. Take care when you type these names. Dont bring your 'sinhalaization' to the deep bottom of Tamil education institutions.

    Goofy Tuesday, 17 December 2013 03:38 PM

    Hey man, are you living on planet earth. Sri Lanka is lacking in proper education both primary, secondary and universities . We are no where near India. For a start how many patents has Sri Lanka registered in the year 2013. Sri Lanka has a very high literacy rate, Lack IQ.

    Ajith T Y Friday, 20 December 2013 05:04 AM

    Now pls add the revised list with adding Richmond, Rahula, Kingswood etc.

    rohana Tuesday, 17 December 2013 03:54 PM

    Bandaranayake College ,Gampaha is the best school in Sri lanka as we have 9 classes and we take the maximum number of students

    Cyber Truth Tuesday, 17 December 2013 04:11 PM

    Cut off marks should be depend on the number intake students.More than 450 students are taken by Bandaranayake College - Gampaha .It is the highest average in Sri Lanka.So Bandaranayake College is the most popular college in sri lanka.

    thulana Tuesday, 17 December 2013 04:17 PM

    fall in the well

    Goofy Tuesday, 17 December 2013 04:23 PM

    Dharmaraja V = 184; Ananda College = 183. Ananda College has dropped below Dharmaraja V. New nice Colombo or Kandy, we are in the same universe.

    vajira Wednesday, 18 December 2013 06:21 PM

    Where is Richmond College, Galle ?

    Jaria Tuesday, 17 December 2013 04:31 PM

    What happened to trinity and Kingswood kandy

    Shace-UK Tuesday, 17 December 2013 04:47 PM

    Good schools produce excellent all-round education. Not book worms...sorry the top schools in SL are
    not in the above list, that's the fact!!!!

    Nishan Tuesday, 17 December 2013 04:50 PM

    What has happened to Rahula, Richmond, kings wood. They are not in the list. Have the vacancies filled up from back door?

    unchikuni Tuesday, 17 December 2013 10:32 AM

    Not only the country but Ananda is dropping in ranking. Reason, produced too many "so ccalled patriots".

    Thava Wednesday, 18 December 2013 10:18 AM

    In Tamil Medium Boys School They Listed Our College as Jaffna Hindu Vidiyalaya. Actually it should be as Jaffna Hindu College. It is too much insulting to rename the school in a list. This is what We Tamil feel discrimination in Language and Race

    ANTON Tuesday, 17 December 2013 10:47 AM

    YEP, EVERYONE KNOWS, THE BEST COLLEGE IN SOUTH WEST ASIA IS ROYAL COLLEGE. THANKS TO THE PRESENT STAFF FOR MAINTAINING THE QUALITY OF THE EDUCATION SYSTEM CONSISTENTLY.

    yasas Wednesday, 18 December 2013 05:08 AM

    Well said

    Rubert Vanderkoon Tuesday, 17 December 2013 05:50 PM

    Trinity is private, won't take Scholarshipers. Kingswood is in Mulgampola, too far from anywhere..

    Roshan Wednesday, 18 December 2013 05:11 AM

    Already leading schools filled by Politicians, poor students has to try somewhere else.

    Fayad Tuesday, 17 December 2013 10:50 AM

    Should upgrade all schools to Royal College and Visakha Vidyalaya Standard, If they can get 186 from the rural schools why not they continue their eduction in the same school, But give the same facilities Colombo schools enjoy.

    sanjaya Tuesday, 17 December 2013 10:50 AM

    How come these cut off marks go up year by year. As I know RC has about 16 classes from grade 6 onwards. I think we have every right to know the no of children admitted for grade 1 & how many are actually there when that particular group of children reached grade 5. Also how many maximum no of children can be accomadated at grade 6 & how many actually got admitted from grade 5 exam............... I think some fishy happening!!!!!

    savinu Friday, 30 January 2015 06:20 PM

    why mr/rahula coolege wasnt at the list..any reason??????

    sk Wednesday, 18 December 2013 12:00 AM

    where is kingswood ???? something wrong in this list...one of legendary school in island...at they stop taking scholars.. via DM Android App

    ananda Tuesday, 18 November 2014 05:33 PM

    Ananda college is best school in sri lanka

    pruthivi bashitha pathirana Friday, 30 January 2015 06:30 PM

    no no thurstan college is best school of the world

    karu Thursday, 19 December 2013 08:17 AM

    Very true , this is a typical example of Singhalaization .They want to discriminate us in every possible way , like these things is good for us as this always reminds us that there is a need for a freedom.

    dcol Tuesday, 17 December 2013 11:30 AM

    Pl check the statistics from 1980s. Ananda was number two in the Boys schools and Royals was one. So both schools maintain same ranks.

    suneth Tuesday, 17 December 2013 11:37 AM

    everyone? southwest asia? are you insane

    ind Tuesday, 17 December 2013 11:39 AM

    This is not true. May be your time it was good, but now it only shines because of talented pupils who selected to the School. I know it well as my son also studying at Royal.

    ind Tuesday, 17 December 2013 11:39 AM

    end of the day Royal get all the credits.

    karu Thursday, 19 December 2013 08:53 AM

    not mistaken it has been mistaken purposely , and this is the way it has to be spelt in Sri lanka , this is a Singhala only country .

    BishanRuf Tuesday, 17 December 2013 11:57 AM

    Then the line up comes as Royal, Ananda, Nalanda, DS

    rizwan Wednesday, 18 December 2013 06:53 AM

    no..in kandy

    ANTON Tuesday, 17 December 2013 12:47 PM

    SEEMS LIKE YOU ARE AN ALIEN.

    Nuwan Tuesday, 17 December 2013 01:13 PM

    Really? Royal is not the best school in SL. Royal is the best showoff school in Sri Lanka. that is it.

    lk Tuesday, 17 December 2013 01:24 PM

    @suneth, dont mock someone just because you were fortunate to receive primary education.

    lk Tuesday, 17 December 2013 02:05 PM

    @Anton, South West Asia!!! You have put SL between Iran and Iraq. Sri Lanka is in South Asia.

    Ibba Tuesday, 17 December 2013 02:13 PM

    I don't see Isipathana College from list. Any reason?

    Kandykalu Wednesday, 18 December 2013 03:36 AM

    @Rubert
    Where is Mulgampola? In Gampola?

    AC Tuesday, 17 December 2013 02:49 PM

    Ananda is not dropping rankings. Darmaraja is in Kandy. Not in Colombo. So all students who are in that area apply for Darmaraja. They don't try to come Colombo. That's why Darmaraja cutoff has gone high. Don't talk like a foolish. Hope you are from Royal as usual. lol

    krishantha Friday, 20 December 2013 01:22 PM

    where is 178 of cutoff

    Max Tuesday, 17 December 2013 03:02 PM

    What happened to the marks on Kingwood? If I remember correctly last year they were in No.6. Have they stopped taking in Grade 5 scholars?

    shanthapriya Wednesday, 18 December 2013 03:51 AM
