Following the closure of schools and the current volatile situation due to the Coronavirus Covid-19, a Working Group made up of representatives of State, Church and Independent Schools, together with the Malta Union of Teacher, is meeting regularly to explore methods of online teaching and the impact of the present situation on the curriculum.

The working group is discussing possible scenarios with regards to Annual examinations, the Benchmark Assessment, the SEC examinations, and the Advanced and Intermediate level Matriculation examinations. Discussions are also taking place with the MATSEC Board. At this stage, educators are encouraged to continue supporting their students. Clear direction will be given to educators, students and parents in due course by the respective Awarding Body (either School, Directorates or MATSEC accordingly).
