The main opposition UNP said Higher Education Minister S.B. Dissanayake and Education Minister Bandula Gunawardena should resign immediately for approving the faulty method of calculating the 2011 GCE A/L Z-Score.

UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayaka told a news conference that there were several mistakes with regard to the calculation of last year’s A/L Z-Score.
“Everyone including Professor Ralph Thattil who introduced the Z-Score system pointed this out but the Ministries of Education and Higher Education ignored these facts and acted on their own,” he said.  “Minister Bandula Gunawardena has said accurate results will be worked out and none of the students need have any concerns. Now the Supreme Court in its verdict has said that what has happened is wrong and unjust. If we’re to go by this verdict the Education Minister and the Higher Education Minister should hand in their resignations.” (Nishan Casseem)

    I don't know about education but there are numerous instances where politicians from both parties have mortgaged the future of the country as a whole for one election.

    Starting from (please correct me if I'm wrong) SWRD's sinhala only policy.

    Valuations87 Wednesday, 27 June 2012 06:36 AM

    The students and parents are anxiously waiting for the new Z-scores, district ranks and island ranks.

    Nodrog Tuesday, 26 June 2012 06:46 AM

    Resign?? That would amount to admitting they were wrong....doubt thats ever going to happen here. Can't remember the last instance any politician took responsibility for their actions and resigned.

    banda Tuesday, 26 June 2012 06:56 AM

    Devaka Tuesday, 26 June 2012 06:54 AM

    In a foreign country both would have resigned by now but this is Sri Lanka.

    Nandana Tuesday, 26 June 2012 06:56 AM

    Why resign only two ministers ask the government to dissolve and go for elections.

    fact u fact u Tuesday, 26 June 2012 06:59 AM

    Is it raining inside the parliament???

    Jehan Tuesday, 26 June 2012 07:16 AM

    If you ask Ministers to resign there are many to ask so, What is ideal is to ask Govt to revisit their whole policies else ask them to go home. i feel the latter is better.

    Dinesh Tuesday, 26 June 2012 07:50 AM

    Oh yes....As if they are going to listen and resign.

    Imran Hussein Tuesday, 26 June 2012 08:54 AM

    they always messed up with education. Remember the NCGE blunder?

    bean ayya Wednesday, 27 June 2012 02:47 AM

    this is the best governemnt ever

    Apsara Tuesday, 26 June 2012 09:28 AM

    Resign = prohibited word in Sri Lankan politics. If it would have happen in another country these fellows would have resigned. Rather they tried shifted the blame towards poor data entry clerks.

    Even if they resign, nothing will happen. Another set of them will replace these positions.
