Download to refer: Universities Admission 2013/14 e-Book
It is with a great sense of responsibility that I issue this message to the book titled “Admission to Undergraduate Courses of the Universities in Sri Lanka, Academic Year 2013/2014”. Gaining admission to a University is a major step in your life. The degree programmes in universities will not only provide knowledge in a wide range of subjects but will also inculcate academic qualities, competency & life skills that would enable self-guidance in future career.
This publication assist you to select subjects, degree program that you would like to acquire in the University. It provides detailed information on universities, rules & regulations & policies pertaining to university admission & minimum qualifications required for university admission & subjects prerequisites to certain courses of study. I am sure that you would find this publication useful and informative and that the information provided would help you make informed decisions about the course you eventually pursue.
I would strongly advise you to read the contents very carefully so that essential information pertaining to a particular course is acquired by you. Admission to universities is still within the policy of “free education” and is extremely competitive.
Out of 55,241 students who applied for university admission based on the 2012 G.C.E. (A/L) Examination, only 24,198 students were selected (43.8%). However, with your knowledge and talent, there is no limit for your achievements.
I wish you every success in your university education and hope that qualifications obtained from the University would lead to a fruitful career that you would enjoy. I would kindly request you to be respectful for the free education that still exists in the country & act in an responsible manner to sustain it.
Finally, I take this opportunity to thank the officers and staff of the Admissions Department and the other officers of the UGC who tirelessly contributed to produce this Handbook.
