O/L candidates urged to send in NIC applications without delay


The Department for Registrations of Persons urges the candidates sitting for the Ordinary Level Examination this year send in applications for their National Identity Cards (NIC) without delay.

The Head Monks of Piriven and principals of schools were previously informed to submit the correctly filled out applications before 31st of March.

However, nearly 50 percent of candidates are yet to submit the relevant applications, says the Department for Registrations of Persons.

Failing to send in the applications in due time will hinder the issuance of identity cards prior to the commencement of the O/L examination, the department further said.
