The University Grants Commission (UGC) has decided to give a second opportunity for the students who passed the 2020 G.C.E. Advanced Level Examination but could not apply for the university admission in time.

Speaking further on the matter, the UGC Chairman Prof. Sampath Amaratunge said, “Accepting applications for university admission of students who took the 2020 Advanced Level Examination ended on the 18th of June.

In addition, any changes that students wish to make to the order of the universities or courses they have chosen will be allowed from July 31 to August 14.

However, those who have already sent in their applications will not be able to make such changes, Prof. Amaratunge noted.
