Structure of the Question Papers and Prototype Questions for GIT Online Examination
General Information Technology (GIT) subject was introduced to G.C.E (A/L) Grade 12students in 2004 with the aim of uplifting the computer literacy of Sri Lankan school children. This subject is taught in every school which conducts G.C.E.(A.L.) classes and every student who studies for G.C.E.(A.L.) should study this subject.
The content of this subject has been prepared with the intention of improving practical knowledge and usage of Computer Technology but the student achievement was measured by a written test up to the present. At the initial stages of testing this subject, the infrastructure
facilities were not sufficient to conduct a practical examination. Therefore a written test was administered in order to measure the achievement levels.
At present, the attention of students for these subjects has been increased with the establishment of Computer Recourse Centers, school computer labs, etc. As it is not fair to measure practical knowledge by a written test, and since a subject of this nature should
deviate from the conventional written evaluation method, a need for a more suitable evaluation methodology arose. Therefore, the Department of Examinations is planning to conduct the General Information Technology (GIT) Examination online from the year 2018 Onwards.
This exam consists of two papers. 1st paper consists of 40 MCQ questions of four choices. Paper-II consists of seven practical questions. Paper I & paper II should be answered online.
