The All Island Association of A Level Qualified Students held a peaceful protest yesterday. The students were protesting the weaknesses in the educational system. They claimed that even those who had passed the A Level examinations with 3 A’s did not receive admission into university. The protesters demanded that those who excelled at their Advanced Level examinations should gain entrance into university. They also protested against a proposal on military training for students, a release from the Association said.
