After a number of discussions, the University of Malta has just informed the media that as of next academic year, i.e. from October 2023 onwards, it will move to the next phase of testing its remote examination system in Gozo.
The existing service will be extended to Gozitan students who will be allowed to sit for their exams within the Gozo Campus located in Xewkija.
As such, this will also be a way to reduce any unnecessary stress imposed on Gozitan students who thus far had to factor in commuting longer distances for their examinations.
The University stated that the WISEflow software used for these purposes was introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic. It allowed for operations to run smoothly during that extraordinary time where students had to electronically sit for their exam.
Following the lifting of restrictions, UM moved onto converting more of its traditional exams to digital. With the University committing to proceed to the next phases of this pilot project, more students would start enjoying more flexibility whilst ensuring that the necessary integrity is retained, as they sit for their exams a bit closer to home.
