Leaking of exam papers lambasted
The education seed has been planted by teachers during the year, now it’s time for pupils to deliver.
End-of-the-year matric examinations are currently under way and we wish all matriculants the best and hope distractions like the leaking of question papers do not occur.
Leaking of question papers hurts and destroys the value of our education and those working in the department.
For a question paper to leak, it means there is more than one person involved. These are our educational officials that we invested our trust in. These are people we respect. Besides all our trust and the respect we have for them, they disappoint us. Leaking exam papers is irresponsible and greedy conduct.
The leaking of papers is not good at all. It not only disgraces the district involved, it also affects the province and pupils concerned.
Pupils who use leaked papers will be affected because exam dates will be rescheduled, questions changed, and all this will affect them.
Again, no one respects matriculants from the affected areas. As concerned citizens, we urge those with direct access to the question papers not to leak them.
We are asking them to make the year 2017 special by not leaking any paper. We are asking them to respect and not destroy our education with their greed and irresponsibility. Good luck to all our matric candidates.
