    The minister said a staff of over 45,000 would be deployed at examination centres and majority of them are teachers.

    He said they have confirmed their participation irrespective of the trade union they belong to.

    “Over 294,800 students will sit for A/L examination this year. This is the first time that such a large number of students are sitting for the A/L examination in the country,” he said. The minister said that, almost all the teachers who would be assigned for the examination duties have confirmed their attendance. The Advanced Level examination will commence on August 8 at 2,400 examination centres throughout the country.

    “A majority of teachers will be engaging in examination duties disregarding the trade union actions. These teachers will not make children fall prey as they have understood the duties and responsibilities of the teaching career. They never take hostage of children’s lives,” the minister Gunawardena noted.

    He further said that examination coordinating officers will also be engaged in their duties as usual. The examination will be monitored and coordinated through 300 examination coordinating centres and 33 district coordinating centres.
