School documents not needed to apply to Universities

The University Grants Commission says students applying to state universities need not submit any documentation issued by schools, due to travel restrictions currently in place.

Speaking to media UGC Chairman Prof. Sampath Amaratunge said applicants are only required to submit the documents they are in possession, and need not submit the principal’s certification.

He said students are unable to obtain documents including the leaving certificate, principals letter of certification and the exam certificates, as schools are closed.

Therefore, Prof. Amaratunge requested students to fill the university application form online and direct it to the UGC, adding they only need to fill in personal information, and there is no need to include documentation from schools.

He added students need not attach their Ordinary Level Examination results as well.

He further stated school applicants can fill the application form using information they already have access to without travelling to schools.

Furthermore, the UGC Chairman said private applicants applying to state universities need not obtain a certificate from the Grama Seva officer to fill the application form.

Prof. Amaratunge said private applicants applying for university entrance will also not require documentation to verify their residence or obtain letters from the Grava Seva officer during the period in which travel restrictions are in place.

He noted the documentation required for submission can be filed once travel restrictions are lifted and schools reopen.

He added the deadline to submit applications ends on the 11th of June, adding that students can submit applications online.
