Students who complained about loud music and disturbance during an exam will not be disadvantaged, the MATSEC examinations board said.

Following reports about loud music being played at a venue close to the Giovanni Curmi Higher Secondary School last Saturday while students were sitting for their SEC Maltese Paper II exam, MATSEC is currently looking into the matter to ensure that such candidates will not be disadvantaged, a statement said.
