(Srilankamirror) - The government will make Dharmacharya examination compulsory for children, said Buddha Sasana deputy minister M.K.D.S. Gunawardena.

Special marks will be given for holders of the Dharmacharya certificate in the appointment of Dharmacharya teachers, university admissions and recruitments to the public service, he said.

Speaking to the media yesterday (Dec. 23), the deputy minister said this exam would shape children into becoming good citizens.

Parents should have the same interest in Dhamma Schools as in the Year Five Scholarship exam, he said.
