|Email item||Print item||
Whilst the First Session of the End of Primary Benchmark will be taking place between 28 June and 4 May 2014, the Director General for Quality and Standards in Education has advised that the Second Session of the End of Primary Benchmark is going to be held at Floriana Primary School in Malta and at the Education Office in Victoria, Gozo, between 16 and 20 June 2014 between 3.00pm and 6.00pm.
Application forms may be collected from the Customer Care Unit, Education Directorates, Floriana or The Education Office, Gozo, as from 5 May 2014. Alternatively, an application form may be downloaded from the website http://www.curriculum.gov.mt.
These application forms are intended for those Year 6 pupils who currently attend a Church or an Independent School that will not be participating in the First Session of the End of Primary Benchmark. In the case of other candidates, who were sick or absent in the First Session for any component, the Educational Assessment Unit will automatically assume that they will be sitting the missed component, in the Second Session.
These children therefore need not apply. However, a passport-sized photo needs to be handed in to the Head of School by 10 June 2014.
Applications must reach the Customer Care Unit, Education Directorates, Floriana, or The Education Office, Rabat, Gozo, by not later than 16 May 2014.
Requests for Exemptions from any Benchmark component, or requests for the provision of Access Arrangements, will be considered on the submission of the requested evidence provided for the First Session of the End of Primary Benchmark.
Candidates who are applying for the Second Session as private candidates, as the school they attend did not participate in the End of Primary Benchmark First Session, and who are eligible for Access Arrangements are to contact the Educational Assessment Unit on 25982139 by 16 May 2014.
For more information contact the Educational Assessment Unit on 25982139.
