Higher Education Minister S.B. Dissanayake says that the report detailing the implementation of the Z-score results will be handed over to the President this evening.

President Rajapaksa on Wednesday (25) had directed the Minister Dissanayaka to forward a comprehensive report on the Z-score issue immediately.

Participating in the monthly meeting of media heads today, the Higher Education Minister said the report will be submitted in the evening.

2011 GCE Advanced Level Examination Z-score results were recalculated for old and new syllabus separately  and re-released on July 22, after the Supreme Court had ordered the University Grants Commission (UGC) to annul z-score calculation for examination.
