Special examination sessions have been planned for this year's SEC and Matriculation Certificate examinations. Timetables for these sessions are available below. These can be accessed in this page.
Late registrations of existing and new candidates can be done through: https://www.um.edu.mt/matsec/matriculationexaminationsregistrationform.
Candidates who had registered for SEC examinations and are not sitting for the new SEC session may apply.
Late registrations are accepted following closing of the registration period (10th May 2020) until they close unannounced.
Very Late registration fees apply as per document below.
Candidates who registered for the SEC Main (May) Session will be awarded a SEC Level 3, 2 or ‘Not awarded’ for each subject they registered for as school candidates. Level 2 is equivalent to SEC grades 6 and 7; whereas Level 3 is equivalent to SEC grades 1-5. The award will be based on the results achieved in the school mock written examinations and coursework (where applicable). This award does not prohibit a candidate from registering to sit for the same subject(s) in the September session (which is a full session, without oral, aural and practical components). Both paper A and paper B option will be offered.
Candidates who registered for subject(s) as private candidates will have the opportunity to re-register and sit for those examinations in September.
Information about possible coursework interviews will be communicated at a later stage.
Registrations shall be accepted between the 17th July until noon 24th July.
Late registrations will be accepted afterwards. Late fees will apply as stated in the document below..
