Dec 9, 2019

A crucial event island-wide is the General Certificate of Examinations-Ordinary Level (G.C.E. O/L) which is held in December. Thus, ensuring the safety of students and effective conduct of the examinations despite the occurrence of disasters was seen as imperative. Complying to a request made by the Department of Examinations, the inception of a national document providing guidelines to be prepared during disasters was finalized. The document compilation was led by the Director of Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and support was provided by the Disaster Management Center (DMC) and A-PAD. Additionally, the National Examination Emergencies Operations Unit (NEEOPs) was formed under the patronage of Commissioner General of Examinations-Department of Examinations and Director General- DMC.
