Four Ministries are collaborating in the process of improving the standards of students who suffer setbacks in examinations. This has been revealed by Minister Bandula Gunawardena.
Only a limited group qualifies for higher education under the prevailing examination system. A considerable group does not qualify to pursue higher studies. An opinion has been built in society that they are being totally neglected. Students who suffer setbacks in examinations should be integrated into society and made contributors to the development process. It is in accordance with this effort that the new programme was being launched. A committee comprising the education, higher education, vocational training and Sports Ministers will meet once a month and plan future initiatives.
