Further confusion over A/L results
More confusion was reported in the results of the G.C.E. Advanced Level Examinations yesterday with reports emerging that some students received results for some subjects which they did not sit for at the exam.
The Movement for People’s Struggle (MPS), a breakaway faction of the JVP, charged that some students who sat for the exam in the Bio-Science stream had received results under a different subject stream.
MPS Coordinator Duminda Nagamuwa who is also the former convener of the Inter University Students’ Federation told a news conference that such confusion had taken place in different parts of the country, in addition to blatant errors in the determination of Z-score rankings of students at national and district levels.

Formula used in determining Z score is wrong, whenever a combine mean is taken Z score is wrong. That is not a z score, it is only a mess. That is the reason why all the results in 2011 and z scores were wrong. All results have become a real mess. There are thousands of examples in all districts and in the all island list to prove them. No wonder if there are several legal proceedings in the coming days due to use of erroneous equation for Z score calculation. Until correct Z score formula is used, similar to the one used in year 2001, it is not possible to correct errors in entire results and z scores. It is not possible to deviate from standard methodology and use a new incorrect methodology. Complete recalculation on the basis of correct methodology would provide all students with an accurate z score, re-correction of some papers would not resolve the problem which is due to wrong equation. Methodology is incorrect therefore a reasonable solution has not been given to the students, shrinkage is incorrect. If the methodology is correct similar proportions need to enter the faculties from two syllabuses. When there are about 70 percent from one syllabus and just thirty percent from the other syllabus enters particular faculties, methodology is obviously wrong an unreasonable for candidates. Fundamental rights of one group of students have been completely disregarded. This can be for one group for a particular faculty and another group for another faculty as the subjects and papers taken are different. Entire student population and future of university admission is affected. Only a complete revision of formula and methodology would give a reasonable solution.
Advance level results should be released on Z score. 2011 results are not founded on Z score, entire results are prepared on an erroneous equation. Entire A/R results are incorrect due to the use of wrong formula.
