Since 2013, more than 5,000 students have benefitted from SEC revision classes, the government has said.

For the ninth consecutive year SEC revision classes are taking place. This is a free initiative by JobsPlus under the Youth Guarantee Project, financed by the EU.

The initiative is aimed at students who will sit for an O-level resit exams in September in Biology, English, Maltese, Maths and Physics.

"This initiative aims to encourage those who did not achieve the marks in these subjects not to give up and instead continue on in their education," Education Minister Clifton Grima said.

Students learning in these revision classes are receiving free lessons from teachers, both online and in class. During the lessons they have access to videos and online tests, while also being given free past papers, the government said.

Lessons began on 25 July and will continue over five weeks in four centres around the country. Students were able to take classes in a maximum of three subjects.

The minister said that the government wants to invest in youths. 

Parliamentary Secretary Chris Bonett said that through the Youth Guarantee, since 2013 more than €1.4 million from EU Social Funds has been invested, of which more than 5,000 students who attended SEC revision classes have benefitted. 

"We invested in the future of our children as these revision classes mean that students who failed in mathematics, Maltese, English, Biology and Physics won't give up, but instead they would try and sit for the exam again to achieve the mark they want and continue studying and investing in their future," Bonett said.
