Ordinary Level Examination from 2022, Health Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne said.Speaking at a press conference at the Government Information Department auditorium yesterday, he said all students will be required to obtain at least a simple pass (S) for Health Science from 2022 onwards. Education authorities have already agreed on this new rule. This step will be taken to ensure health awareness among the Sri Lankan public.
