Z scores for University courses 2011- 2012 academic year (2011 A/L examination)

Schools, Universities 24 887

The University Grants Commission (UGC) released the university entrance (cut-off marks) Minimum Z – Score values for academic Year 2011/2012 based on GCE (A/L) Exam 2011. Following a Court order UGC issued minimum Z – Scores separately for New Syllabus and Old Syllabus. This year release of Z-scores was delayed due to the ‘Z-score crisis’ that occurred after releasing 2011 A/L examination results. The initial Z-scores were were cancelled after a Court Order and the re-corrected Z-scores and ranks are now released.




The Supreme Court ordered the UGC to admit an additional 5,609 students to universities after solving the ‘Z-score’ crisis. Due to this additional intake, about 27,000 students would be admitted to Sri Lankan Universities based on the GCE (A/L) results 2011. It was a 25 per cent increase.

The UGC said that it will take necessary action to admit the students to universities by the end of March 2013

    Zara- If your Z-score is sufficient for a given course, then UGC/ relevant university will send you a letter informing that your are selected for that course.

  21. Zara February 11, 2013 at 10:50 am - 

    Sir,
    What does this mean, ‘# Courses of study for which the subject oriented Practical Tests / Aptitude Tests were conducted’?

  22. Zara February 11, 2013 at 10:48 am - 

    Sir,
    Can I get to know for which course I have been selected and the assigned university of mine through UGC website?
    If it is so, Can I have the link please?

  23. studentlanka February 11, 2013 at 8:36 am - 

    Every year when Z scores are released, due to high traffic (user requests) this site goes down. Be patient and check again ugc site http://www.ugc.ac.lk

  24. Kasuni Jayasinghe February 11, 2013 at 8:33 am - 

    Ugc.ac.lk web site is not working. How can we check 2011 A/L z-scores?
