A programme of events has been organised, which includes the University’s historical context and guided tours of the campus. The media was given a tour of the facilities ahead of the official inauguration next Monday.

The University will open between 10 and 2 on both days.
Over four hundred students received their GSCE results this morning, with an overall pass rate of 70%. This is a 4% increase on last year, with some particularly impressive English Literature results at Westside, where the number of students achieving A and A* grades more than doubled from the previous year. Grades for Maths remain consistently high and Spanish results, which have fallen over the last few years, increased overall this year. The results are the culmination of a huge amount of hard work and effort from both students and teachers, and Katy Docker was there this morning as the students opened their results.

Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory located at the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula. It has an area of 6.7 km2 (2.6 sq mi) and is bordered to the north by Spain. The landscape is dominated by the Rock of Gibraltar at the foot of which is a densely populated city area, home to over 30,000 people, primarily Gibraltarians. An Anglo-Dutch force captured Gibraltar from Spain in 1704 during the War of the Spanish Succession on behalf of the Habsburg claim to the Spanish throne. The territory was subsequently ceded to Great Britain in perpetuity under the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713.

A few days ago Gibraltar released their new regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies. The idea is to provide clarity to entice blockchain companies to move to Gibraltar. I went to Gibraltar to check out the bitcoin scene there and chat to locals about cryptocurrency and what the government has planned.

Results are in from the first year of the A-Levels “reformed” by the UK Government, with a slight drop in the pass rate locally to 92 percent, down from 96 percent last year. The Government has announced it will support and fund requests for re-marks approved by the Department of Education, citing concerns over reports of “a lack of consistent moderation” in the UK.

Students of bayside Westside and the collage this morning received their As and A level results, in line with students in the UK. Grinning faces occupied the courtyards of the higher education institutions, with many students exchanging tales of the little sleep they’d had the night before. Education Minister Gilbert Licudi congratulated students, commenting on the 2% rise in pass grades compared to last year’s results. He also noted that there had been a small drop in the A* to B category, which he put down to the UK’s drive to reform exams... YGTV caught up with all the action earlier today…
Being Gibraltarian WWII Evacuee Anita Valverde remembers her evacuation years in Jamaica, and performs "Mi Gran Peñon", a very touching lyric written by her late husband whilst away from the Rock. Sadly, the little but very powerful emotion-evoking song seems to have faded away and really deserves to form part of our Collective Community Memory The lyrics are touching, more so when one considers they were written by a passionate Gibraltarian who truly missed his beloved Home having been forcibly removed from the Rock so that it could serve as a full-scale Military base and contribute to Britain's efforts during WWII. The segment has been taken from the Straitvision / GBC production, "Evacuation: Cause and Effect", which probably still ranks as the best Gibraltar documentary to ever have ...
