In a recent statement published by the University of Malta, it was reported that an estimated 700 of 976 exams are to be held remotely during its first semester. The reasoning behind this was due to the disruption cause by Malta’s current quarantine measures.
The previous decision to hold physical exams created somewhat of an uproar from various students and organisations, with a petition campaigning for online lectures and exams gaining just under 2,100 signatures. Examinations will start on Monday January 24th.
The University stated that after consulting with faculties, institutions, centres and schools, “it was decided that more than two thirds of exams scheduled to be held at the end of the first semester are to be held online.”
Do you agree with the decision?
