Less than 33% obtained enough marks for University entrance – more than in 2018

Today was a day of celebration for some students and a day of disappointment for others following the publication of O and A Level results.

About 1,750 (1,742) Secondary School students passed their SEC examinations and may now pursue their studies at post-secondary institutions. The MATSEC Board said this is an increase of 135 students when compared to last year’s figures.

About 3,860 (3,857) students sat for exams at intermediate and advanced levels. Of these more than 1,200 (1,207) obtained marks to proceed to University studies. This is also more than 2018.

For the sixth consecutive year, the Ministry for Education is once more offering free revision classes in English Language, Maths, Maltese Language, Physics and Biology for exams in September that may enable them to continue their educational studies.

These students should come forward and apply to enable them to sit for exams in September said Education Minister Evarist Bartolo, while also congratulating successful students.

Revision classes, spread over five weeks will commence on 24th July to the end of August and will be held at various centres in Malta and Gozo. Students may apply here by this coming Wednesday.
