There was no leak­ing of the univer­sity ex­ams that se­nior high school stu­dents are cur­rently sitting, the gov­ern­ment said yes­ter­day af­ter a head teacher al­legedly caught a pupil re­ceiv­ing an­swers on his mo­bile phone.

A pros­e­cu­tor launched a probe af­ter the pupil re­ceived an­swers for the busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion exam he was tak­ing on Wed­nes­day. Po­lice sources said the text mes­sage with the an­swers was sent from a cram­ming school, which is sus­pected of send­ing sim­i­lar mes­sages to an­other 300 stu­dents.

How­ever, the gov­ern­ment in­sisted the per­son who sent the mes­sages had an­swered the ques­tions af­ter they were posted on the Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry’s site rather than re­ceiv­ing them be­fore­hand. “There is no ques­tion of leaks,” said Deputy Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Yian­nis Panare­tos. “The ques­tions were posted on our site at 9.35 a.m. and the pupil re­ceived the mes­sage at 10.05 a.m.” Competition for univer­sity places is ex­pected to be par­tic­u­larly fierce this year.
