Vocational subjects will be added to the list of O level topics for students who do not fit into the “Matsec funnel”, Education Minister Evarist Bartolo told Times of Malta. From the next scholastic year, fifth form students will be able to sit for O level exams in hospitality, engineering and social and community care to make school “more relevant”, he said. The Matsec examination board, which sets and grades exam papers, had been extended to include representatives from the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology and the Institute of Tourism Studies, Mr Bartolo added. “Our biggest...

The results obtained by students in the core subjects of SEC exams are further confirmation that all is not well with the management of our educational system. This does not bode well for the country’s future socio-economic prospects. Education Minister Evarist Bartolo outlined some disappointing SEC pass rates obtained by students this year. The statistics are very partial and may hide a much more turbulent situation that the headline figures indicate. Unfortunately, the benchmarks used to assess these results may not indicate sufficiently the extent of the underperformance of Maltese... This article is part of our premium content.

Students who leave school without O-levels will soon have the possibility to obtain certification at lower levels in a drive to tackle early school leavers. The current set up sees secondary students sit for SEC exams at the end of Form 5, that gives them the equivalent of Level 3 on the European qualifications system. Students who do not obtain the grades in their SEC exams end up with no qualification and have to undergo a foundation course if they want to enter post-secondary schooling at MCAST. Under the new strategy, an alternative path that certifies students at Level 1 and 2, will give students the chance to start MCAST courses at Level 3 without the need to undertake the foundation course. Education Minister Evarist Bartolo said the important thing was not to measure the number of students who start foundation courses but those who actually finish them and progress to other courses. He said the current rate of drop-outs was too high and the alternative path to obtain Level 1 and 2 certification would help fill in a gap in the system. This forms part of the strategic plan for the Prevention of Early School Leaving, released this afternoon by the educational...

HSBC Malta said today that its results between January 1 and May 19 were below the level achieved last year. In a statement to the stock exchange, the bank said it was operating against a backdrop of very challenging market conditions. The main factors impacting performance were margin compression, slow loan growth and a reduced contribution from the life insurance business, that in the comparative period in 2013 benefited from a significant one-off gain. The bank said it had seen a rise in operating expenses as a result of compliance investments and increased regulatory fees. However underlying expenses have been well controlled and significant work continues around streamlining the business for greater efficiencies. Loan impairments were up on 2013, as the prior year benefited from a number of recoveries, but lower than forecast. Mark Watkinson, director and chief executive Officer of HSBC Malta, said: “The European market remains very difficult and the low interest rate environment presents its own set of issues for an organisation such as ours. Nevertheless, we continue to build our business and invest in our franchise. The growth in the pipeline of commercial and retail...
