Malta Medical Students’ Association (MMSA) solidified a top placing in the Room Allocations Report (RAR), it was revealed during an Admin Forum today. A total of 55 organisations from the University of Malta submitted their hefty reports to the University Students’ Council (KSU) in late August. MMSA kept the top spot they achieved last year with 2103 points, more than double the amount of points of the first runners-up Malta Health Students’ Association (MHSA). The reports had to include all necessary information about the organisations’ workings throughout the past year. Points were then allocated and standardised, according to the content of the report, by a board that included past active University students and ex-KSU members. “Points were allocated for every important detail”, KSU Secretary General Kenneth Terribile said during the forum. “Great importance was given to organisations who collaborated with each other on events or initiatives”. During the forum the organisations who placed in the top 32 were shown to attendees, signifying those organisations who will have an office for the next scholastic year. If any of the 32 organisations decide they do not need an office within the University building, preference will be given to the next placed organisation. Insite placed 13th with 597 points, an improvement of over 100 points from last year’s report. Terribile announced that the refurbishment of student house has been a success so far, and he hopes organisations will take care of their respective offices. The organisations who placed in the top 10 are: 1. MMSA 2. MHSA 3. SDM 4. ELSA 5. GUG 6. TDM2000 7. Pulse 8. S-Cubed 9. GHMU 10. JEF
