    The current Sri Lankan Secondary Education System has been substantially exposed to ICT through various programs including CAL, ICT for GCE (O/L) and GIT at grade 12.

    Consequently, students have shown a growing interest in ICT education and some have, in fact, performed excellently at international competitions in ICT, proving their high level of competence.


    At present there is no main subject area under ICT for GCE (A/L).  Therefore, GCE (O/L) qualified students, interested in developing their career path in ICT, are deprived of the opportunity of learning it at the GCE (A/L). Introducing ICT as a subject for A/L would set a national standard in ICT education at school level and provide the path to higher education at tertiary level.


    Furthermore, students who fail to earn a placement in a university would be in possession of a substantial foundation to build up their academic and professional careers.
