UGC extends admission deadline

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has extended the deadline to submit applications for the admission of students to state universities for the academic year 2020-2021.

Accordingly, applications can be submitted until June 18, Chairman of the UGC, Prof. Sampath Amaratunge stated.

Earlier, the deadline was set for June 11 and students were instructed to send in their applications online to the UGC.

The UGC had previously announced that applications for university admissions can be submitted without the Principal’s Certificate and GCE Ordinary Level Certificates, due to the prevailing travel restrictions imposed to mitigate COVID-19.
