Zim­sec exam pa­pers ‘leak’

The Sunday Mail (Zimbabwe) - - NEWS - Lissa Ngorima

TWO Or­di­nary Level ex­am­i­na­tion pa­pers re­port­edly leaked in Harare last week, with can­di­dates pay­ing US$10 each to get the ques­tions and an­swers.

Though Zim­babwe School Ex­am­i­na­tions Coun­cil spokesper­son Ms Ni­co­lette Dh­lamini sug­gested the pa­pers in ques­tion could have been fake, sources told The Sun­day Mail that the same ques­tions in the leaked pa­pers fea­tured in last week’s Math­e­mat­ics Pa­per 2 and English Lan­guage Pa­per 2 ex­am­i­na­tions.

Ms Dh­lamini con­firmed, though, that Zim­sec was in­ves­ti­gat­ing a leak of the Math­e­mat­ics pa­per at Ka­ma­tivi Sec­ondary School in Mata­bele­land North.

“There is no truth at all in the leak­ages (in Harare). We are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a re­ported case of a leak in Ka­ma­tivi,” she said.

But a source said, “The teach­ers are the ones who were ap­proach­ing can­di­dates with the pa­pers, say­ing we can have the pa­pers for US$10. They ac­tu­ally pro­vided the an­swers.”

An­other said, “Some of the pa­pers are hand-writ­ten; that’s why some of us doubted them at first. How­ever, can­di­dates who got the pa­pers en­coun­tered the same ques­tions, and of course wrote the an­swers!”
