The data collected from relevant bodies of five (5) educational zones namely Akkaraipattu, Ampara, Kalmunai, Sammanthurai and Thirukkovil, at Ampara district for this analysis. Through the analysis results, it was found out that the selection rate of ICT subject has a remarkable improvement in the year 2015 and it has a modest increase from the year 2015 because of the new arrival of Technology stream.
