Today in this article we are going to give you a list of A/L subject number & subject names.

The GCE Advanced Level Examination is the final examination of the students pursuing secondary education. This is a competitive examination among the examinations in Sri Lanka. This is because it is the basic exam that students choose for universities and institutes of higher learning.

In addition, it is possible to obtain middle-level employment opportunities after the GCE Advanced Level examination. Therefore, it is important to know the exact subject numbers and subject names before the GCE Advanced Level examination.

Why is the A/L subject number and subject name important to us?

Generally, we apply for the GCE Advanced Level examination in two ways. They are,

  1. As a school applicant / candidate
  2. As a private applicant / candidate

Whichever way you apply, it is important for you to know the subject number. The main reason for this is to know whether we will get the question paper relevant to the subject of our choice at the examination. Moreover, in the exam, we often do not write the name of the subject. Instead, we write only the subject number. Therefore, it is very useful to know the correct subject number for the subjects we are studying in A/L class.

How many subjects are there in the Advanced Level Examination in Sri Lanka?

There are about 63 subjects to study for the GCE Advanced Level Examination. These subjects are divided into five categories. They are,

  1. Physics Subject Stream (Combined maths subject stream)
  2. Biology Subject Stream
  3. Commerce Subject Category
  4. Art Subject Stream
  5. Technology subject category (Bio & Engineering Technology, Mathematics)

It is compulsory for all students studying in the above streams to write answers in General English and General Knowledge papers at the examination.
