Got Your Results? ✍️
Don't get comfortable! You may as well set up a plan from now for what schools you're applying to. The following is a breakdown of the Junior College entry requirements as well as some added details for students that missed exams.
A New Chapter 📖
The first thing you need to know is that admission period #1 is in August, between today the 20th and the 25th which ends very soon! You should also know that whether you've received all of your results or not, you should still apply ASAP.
Entry Requirements 👇
The following entry requirements for admission to Junior College (JC) apply for the Standard Matriculation Certificate and other 2-year study programmes that make use of the same general entry requirements:
Applicants must be in possession of 6 passes in the Secondary Education Certificate Examinations at Grade 5 or better. The subjects must include: English Language, Il-Malti, Mathematics and at least one of Physics, Chemistry or Biology.
In cases where an applicant does not hold SEC qualifications but has qualifications from other boards, the applicant may still be admitted following a favourable recommendation of the Admissions Board.
If your qualifications fall short of requirements due to a significant disability, you may make a request to the Admissions Board who, on the advice of the Access Disability Support Committee (ADSC), will consider each application on its own merit.
Non-Maltese applicants not in possession of SEC qualifications are to contact the International Office by sending an email.

Temporary Students 👀
Applicants who do not have all the entry qualifications to JC may be accepted as Temporary Students.
Candidates who happen to be in mandatory quarantine during the main June session of exams, missing a core SEC subject (Maltese, English, Mathematics and a Science subject) will be able to sit the missed exam in the October session.
If temporary students do not qualify for entry requirements by the time the SEC resit results are out in November, they will not be allowed to continue with their studies at the College.
Candidates may only sit for English Language, Mathematics, Maltese and only one in either Biology or Chemistry or Physics in the supplementary (resit) session.
Probationary Students ⚠️
It's important to note that with respect to SEC Examinations and Admission to JC:
Candidates who, because of mandatory quarantine during the June or the supplementary session of examinations, miss a core/non-core SEC subject required as one of the entry qualifications for JC will have their case dealt with by the JC Admissions Board. Such prospective students need to apply to be admitted to JC and petition their case to the JC Admissions Board.
In the cases illustrated above, applicants falling in this category will be considered as Probationary Students.
Probationary Students must be promoted to second-year to be allowed to continue their course of studies at JC. If they are not promoted, said students may restart first-year provided they have all the necessary entry qualifications in October 2022.
