Elections won’t affect MATSEC, University exams timetables

The University grant special concession to University students who will be unable to sit for the exams on June 3, 5 and 6 as a result of their direct involvement in the electoral process

There will be no changes to the timetable of examinations being held at the University of Malta in the run-up to the general election, the University announced.

The University said that the students’ council, KSU, had consulted different student organisations and it emerged that the majority of students strongly oppose changes to the examination schedule.

“In the circumstances, all examinations will be held as originally planned at the University of Malta and the Junior College. In addition, MATSEC sessions at all levels will proceed as planned,” the UoM said.

The University has made the necessary arrangements with the Electoral Commission to ensure that examination venues being used by MATSEC will not be used as polling stations.  

On Monday 5th June, road patrols will be set-up at the entrance to the University to ensure that only students and members of staff are allowed access to the university’s premises. Such measures should facilitate the flow of traffic entering university and avoid unnecessary delays.

Furthermore, the University Library and other important facilities will be opened at 7am to cater for those students who opt to turn up early on campus.

Meanwhile the University will be granting a special concession to those University students who will be unable to sit for the exams on the 3rd, 5th and 6th June as a result of their direct involvement in the electoral process.

These students will be given the opportunity to take the missed examinations as a first sit in September.
