  2. Recess sessions for Semester Two and onwards are to be determined after the lockdown when the Ministry of Education guides on a new School Academic Calendar. However, the Recess students are set to do Exams from 28th July -6th August 2021 for Semester One online and delivered as Take Home.
  3. UNMEB Examinations were put to a halt because of the Lockdown. We are awaiting guidance from the Nurses Council after the Lockdown.

  6. Internship for students offering Computer Science, Public Health, Agriculture, Industrial Fine Art and Design, Science and Technology is ongoing with permission from the Organization they are placed. They were allowed to continue and hope the departments conducted supervision and awaiting results.
