The second session of the End of Primary Benchmark is going to be held in the afternoon between 9 and 11 June 2021. Maltese candidates will sit for this session at San Ġorġ Preca College Floriana Primary School.
Candidates who will have completed Year 6 in a Church or Independent School that will not be participating in the First Session of the End of Primary Benchmark. Candidates should complete an Application Form that may be collected as from Monday, 26 April 2021 from the Educational Assessment Unit, 32 Joseph Abela Scolaro Street, Ħamrun (located within the grounds of the ex-Maria Assumpta Girls’ Secondary School). The application form may also be downloaded at www.curriculum.gov.mt. Completed application forms need to be returned to the Educational Assessment Unit, Ħamrun (between 8:00 to 16:00hrs) by not later than Friday, 7 May 2021. A passport-sized photo is to be submitted together with the Application Form. The photo needs to be signed by an authoritative person (such as the Head of School or family doctor) verifying that it is a true image of the applicant.
Candidates who will have completed Year 6 in a State, a Church or an Independent School that will have participated in the First Session of the Benchmark but who, during the First Session, were absent from any or all components. In the case of candidates falling under Category B, the Educational Assessment Unit will assume that children who were absent in the First Session for any components will be sitting the missed component/s in the Second Session. These children therefore need not re-apply. However, on returning to school after the end of the First Session of the Benchmark, these candidates need to submit to their school a passport sized photo endorsed by an authoritative person (such as the Head of School), verifying that the photo is a true image of the applicant. This photo needs to be affixed to the Identity Card that will be provided to theschool by the Educational Assessment Unit. Heads of School are to ensure that these cards are filled in and sent to the Educational Assessment Unit by not later than Tuesday, 1 June 2021.
