An 18-year-old student has committed suicide by jumping into a well after she was refused admission to sit for her Advanced Level (A/L) examination.
It is reported that the student’s admission paper for the A/Level examination was refused to her because she had failed Mathematics in her Ordinary Levels.
The student, Gunasekaram Vidya, had been studying in her school, Pandarikulam Vipulananda Maha Vidyalaya, as a Grade 13 student under the Arts stream. A postmortem inquiry into her death determined that she had drowned. The Vavuniya Police are conducting further investigations.
