Students can presently sit for exams in two subjects – Latin and Classical Greek – at Advanced Level. So far, no post-secondary institutions in Malta prepare students to sit for any of these exams but the MCA is more than happy to put prospective students in touch with teachers from all over Malta who would be willing to prepare them to do so. These exams are held throughout May and September and students are welcome to choose whichever session they prefer.
