2021 (2022) Grade 5 Scholarship Examination is scheduled to be held today (January 22) at 2,943 centres from 9.30 a.m. to 12.15 p.m.

A total of 340,508 candidates are to face the exam this time which was postponed on multiple occasions due to the ongoing pandemic situation, the Commissioner-General of Examinations L.M.D. Dharmasena said.

Special measures have been taken to facilitate novel coronavirus-infected candidates and those who are under quarantine to sit for the exam without any inconvenience, he noted.

Accordingly, additional 108 special exam centres have been set up across the island for such children.

The candidates affected by the virus infection can face the exam at the nearest special exam centre by producing a report of a PCR or rapid antigen test. Children under quarantine or displaying symptoms of Covid-19 will be able to take the test in a separate room at these special exam centres.

Secretary to Education Ministry, Prof. Kapila Perera urged the parents to adhere to health guidelines when sending their children to the exam this morning.
