UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe will make a statement in Parliament today on the crisis of the Advanced Level results, the party said yesterday.
Chief Opposition Whip John Amaratunga said that his party would also move a motion for the appointment of a select committee to study the reasons that led to the crisis. Mr. Amaratunga said that the party would hand over the motion to Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa in terms of normal procedure.
The select committee is expected to study the modalities of the calculation of the Z-score marks of students sitting the Advanced Level examination, and to make recommendations to avoid repetition of such problems hereafter. (KB)
