From what I know most Colombo schools (popular ones) do not work as hard to prepare their kids for scholarships. Anyway. if they are in a "good school" it does not really matter for the long term.However, it would be a good "test" and practice for life skills if kids learn to sit in one place and work on a timed schedule. Most average kids gain from this. Of course there may be a few who do not do so well is these tests, but who are nevertheless brilliant. We need to make allowances for them also. Einstein as an example of the latter group.

congratulations son, may you reach himalayan heights & make us our motherland proud. Sri lanka has lots of talent, i can remember an year 8 school kid from Isipatana had his own satellite channel & he wanted to edit the logo of that channel. *I couldnt belive what he was talking about. we dont have the funds, otherwise we could show the whole world what we are capable of. Proud to be a Sri Lankan.

nagalingam Wednesday, 22 September 2010 11:28 AM
Well done Sanuja and all those who have performed well. Is it possible for the Education Department to conduct a study to determine how the first 1000 who passed the Gr 5 exam in, for eg, 2001 fared in the 2009 GCE "A" level, compared with the 1000 who were below the Gr 5 pass mark in 2001? The result will show the importance or otherwise of the Gr 5 National exam.

That is that comparative study of performance in Grace five and GCSE will be an interesting area for Research in education and D/E should do such research so that performance link between these two examination can be established and it should also reveal that those who failed in grade five examination still could excel in GCSE .
