Cabinet nod to start A/Level classes immediately after O/Level exams


The Cabinet of Ministers has approved a proposal to commence GCE Advanced Level classes in schools immediately after the conclusion of the 2023 (2024) GCE Ordinary Level examination which is currently underway.  

A period of at least three months is required for the Department of Examination to release the results after the conclusion of the Ordinary Level examination. 

According to the government, during this period, the students’ deviation from school education is the reason for a decrease in following the GCE Advanced Level education, as well as various social issues. 

Taking into account these facts, the Education Ministry has recognized that it is appropriate to commence Advanced Level classes in schools following the conclusion of the Ordinary Level examination in May 2024.

The Ministry believes this move will help manage students’ time effectively and provide enough time for teachers to cover the Advanced Level syllabus. 

Accordingly, the Cabinet approved the proposal presented by the Education Minister to begin Advanced Level classes immediately after the end of the examination for the students sitting for the 2023 (2024) G.C.E. O/L examination.
