    Correct, its bettr MR takes over all the Ministers portfolios and send the Minisrters home.

    Godagampala Rohana Wednesday, 25 July 2012 07:51 AM

    President Mahinda Rajapakshe is like Sam the Man, and he can play one man show. So, its a good move.

    Earlier..... supporting hero appeared (secretary to MR) and now the main hero will intervene.... will see the hero will defeat...!

    Mahadenamutta & Golayas at their Best, and still going strong!

    Although people might have forgotton, this 'Heroic Intervention' is the root cause of this whole fiasco. When results were delayed in the first instance 'MR' intervened and 'ordered' the ministers to release results the very next day. And the ministers should did it.

    That's the intervention which started the whole problem.

    Professor Wednesday, 25 July 2012 07:24 AM

    Very few people will be able to understand the intricacies of z-score calculations.

    rajas Wednesday, 25 July 2012 11:15 AM

    mahinda good actors .....

    Imran Hussein Wednesday, 25 July 2012 11:21 AM

    Mahadenamutta & Golayas in action again!

    Your period you haven't build any university in Sri Lanka. At least you should built in Hambantota with Chinese help. May be it is 50% Chinese owned and Chinese student. It doesn't matter. 50% belong to Sri Lanka and Sri Lankan students. China can bult a university within 1 year. All Z score problem students can take into that university. Do some action! Reports do not work! Sri Lanka has experience many reports with zero action!

    Ganegoda Wednesday, 25 July 2012 11:47 AM

    Why the hell that you have two ministries, if any of those can not take a decision. I request from those ministries not to play hell with the future of students.

    The only way MR can intervene is to admit all students who qualified to enter Uni. before the Z-score and after the, Z-score fiasco, to Unis. so that poor students will not feel disgruntled. otherwise it will be a sin for which this Govt will have to pay heavily.

    Professor Thursday, 26 July 2012 05:37 AM

    It is not possible to admit students to Unis in an ad-hoc way as there is a problem with space. At Colombo Medical College the existing Anatomy building has been demolished by the government 4 years ago promising to put up a new building. Upto now no funds have been allocated only the bare land stands at Punchi Borella. Therefore the present medical students are undergoing severe hardship due to lack of space. How can they admit additional students? Jaffna university council has approved the setting up of the Engineering faculty in April 2011. So Jaffna Mathematics stream students will be at an advantage.

    Ellawala Thursday, 26 July 2012 10:38 AM

    During MR's period let alone building new unis the buildings of existing unis have been demolished promising to give better facilities to undergraduates. If the existing unis are developed more students could be admitted in a year's time.

    The two ministers, the former commissioner general of examinations, and all members of the so called Wijetillekaka Committee should be taken into task for not doing a prpoer job. They only enjoy salaries and perks.

    janak Wednesday, 25 July 2012 04:07 AM

    for everything mr has to intervenne. for what then ministers

    Nodrog Wednesday, 25 July 2012 04:08 AM

    Why are we maintaining 2 ministers of education if the prez has to intervene for every issue?

    das Wednesday, 25 July 2012 04:28 AM

    indications of corruption and waste of having so many minsters to stay in power !

    Minister Wednesday, 25 July 2012 04:29 AM

    Why not appoint Dayasiri as the Education Minister? He is now already on the fence to jump!

    Lanka Shantha Wednesday, 25 July 2012 04:32 AM

    Chase out all these uncomplimentary ministers and save Billions to the nation.

    IND Wednesday, 25 July 2012 04:30 AM

    First I thought Bandula will do some good thing for Education. But including SB, they are the worse Education Ministers ever had.

    Mendis Wednesday, 25 July 2012 04:31 AM

    why what happened to the "wijethilleke" committee appointed by HE about 02 months back? Where's that report?

    Dadoriya Wednesday, 25 July 2012 03:41 AM

    Can this minister write a report?

    senarath Wednesday, 25 July 2012 04:56 AM

    Nothing will happen ;may be another drama.

    buffaloa citizen Wednesday, 25 July 2012 05:09 AM

    Absolute truth.

    Al Rasa Wednesday, 25 July 2012 05:11 AM

    Every action has a reaction. Due to court order now the situation has become worst.

    Punchi Putha Wednesday, 25 July 2012 06:07 AM

    Hope this intervention brings positive results, if it does then there are so many interventions needed

    Kumara Wednesday, 25 July 2012 06:25 AM

    Z-score is calculated by taking the
    1) Raw marks
    2) Mean for each subject
    3) Standard Deviation
    Other than for a statistician these words will be like Greek to somebody else.

    Cynic Wednesday, 25 July 2012 07:17 AM

    The Education Minister is a Tution mudalali, the Monitoring Minister is an International School mudali and the Higher Education Minister is a person convicted by court.

    dev Wednesday, 25 July 2012 07:09 AM

    that's the so called miracle of Asia
