  • I’ve only tried one essay service but I can tell you that the website I used was really solid. It’s called Digitalessay.net. Basically you get to pick a writer and you can communicate with them through an internal chat system which makes explaining how to do specific assignments a lot easier (especially if your teacher is a hard-ass like mine was.) Good luck with your paper!

  4. 4. Demand & Supply for Tertiary Education in Sri Lanka Source: UGC http://www.ugc.ac.lk/statistics/General/indicators.htm Excess DEMAND
  5. 5. Can the Government Alone, Meet this demand? Source: UGC (Sri Lanka) EUROSTAT, OECD (2003) Education at a glance OECD indicators 2003 In Europe, the same ratio is 2.4% and in the USA it’s only 0.9% Sri Lankan Government is already spending on university education, to the maximum potential

  11. 11. Common Perceptions “ Allowing non-state universities is a threat to the free education system. It will lead the way for privatizing all the state universities in future” Wrong!
