Po­lice help sought in test pa­per-leak­age case

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

China’s ed­u­ca­tional author­ity said it asked po­lice for as­sis­tance in in­ves­ti­gat­ing a pos­si­ble cheating scan­dal af­ter pa­pers of the na­tional post­grad­u­ate ex­ams were re­port­edly leaked on­line.

The an­nual Na­tional Post­grad­u­ate En­trance Ex­am­i­na­tion con­cluded on Sun­day, but al­leged ques­tions and an­swers for the English and pol­i­tics cour­ses were ex­posed on the In­ter­net a day ear­lier.

The sus­pected leaked pa­pers were ini­tially pub­lished by two ma­jor test train­ing agen­cies to some of their trainees be­fore they were made open on­line. Many stu­dents who took part in the ex­ams con­firmed the leaked ques­tions were ex­actly the same as that in their test pa­pers.

The Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion said in a state­ment that it had re­ported the sus­pected leak­age scan­dal to the pub­lic se­cu­rity au­thor­i­ties and will crack down on any cheating ac­tiv­i­ties.

Sta­tis­tics from the min­istry showed that 1.77 mil­lion stu­dents reg­is­tered for the Na­tional Post­grad­u­ate En­trance Ex­am­i­na­tion for 2016.
