Cut-off marks within next 2 weeks - UGC

The cut-off marks for students selected for universities this year will be announced within the next two weeks, the University Grants Commission said.

“Prior to releasing the cut off marks, a discussion will be held with the participation of all the Vice-Chancellors of universities, next week,” UGC Vice President, Prof. Janitha Liyanage said on Wednesday (Sept. 30).

The results of 36 proficiency examinations related to university admissions have already been released.

Around 40,000 students are expected to be admitted to universities this year based on the results of the 2019 GCE Advanced Level Examination.

According to Prof. Janitha Liyanage, this is an increase of around 10,000 students compared to last year.

The number of students enrolled in several degree courses such as medicine and engineering was increased this year, Prof. Janitha Liyanage further noted.
