About Our Institute

Today, the Institute (IWMS ) is a fully fledged, state-recognized Institute, incorporated in 1988, by the Act of Parliament No. 44 without share capital or other commercial attributes.

 It has grown in stature and has established a reputation as the largest, most progressive and innovative, local Examining Body in Sri Lanka conducting a record number of examinations island-wide, in Music, Speech and allied subjects in all grades including Diploma. The syllabuses compiled by qualified experienced examiners are in keeping with internationally accepted standards. The Institute met this challenge way back in 1971 when the conduct of foreign examinations was discontinued. The introduction of Written English Examinations and Speech Theory in 1984 was another step towards the expansion in the scope of examinations.
