Most university exams are conducted online

University of Malta

Following consultations with faculties, institutions, centers and schools, the University of Malta has decided that more than two-thirds of the exams scheduled for the end of the first semester will be conducted online.

This is primarily done to minimize disruption to the assessment due to absences caused by Covid quarantine obligations.

Last year, most exams were also held online due to the impact of Covid-19.

This year’s exams are due to start on Monday January 24 and end on Saturday February 12.

As a general rule, students enrolled at the University of Malta are assessed for each module at the end of the first semester. A similar process takes place at the end of the second semester towards the end of May.

Different modes of assessment apply across the University for the different units of study provided by faculties, institutes, centers and schools. It is expected that a total of 976 different examinations will be administered over a three-week period at the University of Malta.

700 of them will be held remotely while the rest will be held on campus.

The University of Malta has also made arrangements for students who miss physical exams due to quarantine to be offered an alternative session or alternative assessment method, no later than three weeks after the first holding of the exam. Final year students who may miss going to university to take an exam due to quarantine will also benefit from a special session.

Despite the challenges posed by the current situation, the University is committed to identifying ways and means to enable all students to take their exams and complete their first semester study units with minimal disruption.
