Local News: Amid the Covid 19 outbreak, the Ministry of Education has implemented an electronic application program for Advanced Level applicants.
With the online application process, which started on Wednesday, applicants at schools will not need to call in to hand over their applications or wait for school opening, sources from the Ministry of Education said. Accordingly, students can apply online for Advanced Levels by logging on to the http://moe.gov.lk/ website, based on the results of the Ordinary Level Examination 2019. It is possible to use any of the three languages but Sinhala and Tamil letters have to be typed in Unicode.
For 2020 academic year, each student is eligible to apply for a maximum of ten Advanced level classes. The ministry sources said all the applications should be sent before June 12th. After the closing date, no application will be approved.
As per the general practice, students have to call up at schools to apply for Advanced Levels but they can submit their application from home with the introduction of the new program students.
Once the success of the new online application system has been evaluated, a decision will be taken on whether to continue if it is more effective.
