A group of Art O’Level students have launched a petition to Matsec and the University of Malta to request that their artwork be returned to them after it has been corrected.

Unlike their A-Level counterparts, the artwork that O-level students submit for their exams are not returned to them once they have been corrected.

Now a group of students have decided to take matters into their own hands by launching an online petition against this practice.

“It’s not fair that candidates spend a maximum of three hours creating a piece of artwork only to have it destroyed. We pour out blood, sweat and tears even on preparatory work, let alone the final work,” one student wrote.

“There is not valid reason why the work should not be returned to the person who made it. It is a pity to have them disposed of when the students want them back!” another person wrote.
