According to the UGC sources, 2020 A/L Zscore cut-off marks will be release October month end. Z-score cutoff marks will be released to UGC official website www.ugc.ac.lk.
Release of cutoff marks delayed due several reasons. With the 3rd COVID wave in Sri Lanka which started mid April, Sri Lanka restricted government offices’ staff, imposed lock-downs, introduced Work From Home WFH and imposed month-long travel restrictions. Those development impact to the releasing of Zscore cutoff marks.
