MATSEC exams take place despite great Magħtab smoke

Worried parents contacted Newsbook.com.mt regarding the MATSEC exams at Giovanni Higher Secondary to ask whether the exams were still taking place. Earlier today, the Civil Protection Department advised people to stay home after great smoke from a Magħtab fire swept across localities.

Newsbook.com.mt immediately contacted MATSEC and Higher Secondary this morning and received a confirmation that the exam would begin at 9am. Questions have been sent to the two entities as well as the Ministry but no reply has been received as yet.

According to the exam timetable, another exam is scheduled for 4pm but no new information has been received regarding whether it will take place or not.
