The O'Level and SSC examinations in the Maldives commence officially on Wednesday, 04th May, with over 5,900 students attending the exams.
Relevant authorities attest that students from a total of 239 sectors of the country are enrolled in the examination, which will last until 10th June 2022.
Moreover, it was reported that local students currently residing in Malaysia and Sri Lanka have been enrolled to the examination.
Students in both of these countries will be attending their examinations at the Maldives Cultural Centre in Sri Lanka and Maldives Center in Malaysia, facilitated by the Department of Public Examination.
Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, Maldivian students generally attended the October-November phase of the O'Level examinations.
However, following the pandemic outbreak resulting in unprecedented halts in the academic progression, the Ministry of Education decided on changing the policy for local students to take part in the May-June intake.
