Is 2019 GIT Exam Online? What’s It? Are You Ready?



I think you already know that 2019 GIT examination is going to be held as an online examination. Many students are confused about this exam, because this is the first time that the G.C.E.(A/L) students are facing an online exam.

But there’s nothing to worry…! We’ll show you the path..

Today let’s discuss what is an online exam and how to face it…

What is an Online Exam?

  • An online exam is giving a question series through internet to provide answers within a given period of time.
  • So, to face an online exam, the candidate should have internet facility and either a computer or smart phone or a tablet.

We guess that the government will provide internet facility and computers through the computer labs at schools to sit for the GIT  exam at different time schedules.

  • The students have to select the answers for the questions within the assigned time for each question.
  • The other thing is that the students can’t copy the answers from nearby students. Because the order of questions will not be the same for every student.

Ex: Question number one of one student  may not be the question number one of the other student who is sitting next to him/her.


How to face an Online Exam ?

The Examination Department has created a web page as a guidance for the students to face the GIT exam successfully. Let’s see how to work on it..

Follow the steps below…
