The Education Ministry had decided to reconsider students' cut off marks released recently for the 2020 Grade five scholarship examination.

Ministry Secretary Prof. Kapila Perera said parents protested earlier claiming that they were disappointed with the recent Grade five scholarship examination cut off marks.

Therefore, the decision was taken following requests made by parents, he said.

He said parents were requested to reconsider the cut off marks and increase the enrolments without it, as they were higher this year.

Therefore, the Education Ministry has decided to temporarily postpone the admission of students to all schools based on the Grade five Scholarship Examination results.

However, the cut off marks will be revised soon in order to enrol more students, Prof. Perera added. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    Make decisions which are not well thought out, and revise them when there are protests against them?

    How can one reduce the cut-off marks without increasing the intake? Are we planning to admit low mark students by leaving out the ones who scored higher marks. Cut-off marks have gone up due to the better performance by the children and not due to any action by the department. Why can’t they explain it to parents!
