Matric’s exam paper leaks just hours before it was written
The Department of Basic Education said that, the second mathematics paper was leaked, only a few hours from writing this paper

The department said in a statement that learners in Gauteng and Limpopo provinces could have used the leaked paper, adding that the location of the leak is not yet known.

“The basic education department is investigating the matter to determine the extent of the leak. Earlier sources pointed out that the scope of the leak was limited to a small number of learners in these two provinces.”

The department said its investigation team was looking into the leak but it would ask law enforcement to assist, and requested that those who knew about the leak to come forward.

The leak has not jeopardised the integrity of the exams, according to the department.

This is not the first time a matric paper has been leaked in Limpopo. In the 2016 matric exams, the maths paper two was leaked to learners in Giyani, and they circulated it on Whatsapp. The department held the results of the schools while the Hawks and the police investigated. In 2015 a life science paper was leaked in the Vhembe district of Limpopo.

In 2014, the matric exam also faced a cheating scandal involving 58 schools in the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal. It was discovered that group copying had taken place in a maths paper. This led to the results of several schools being nullified. More than 100 learners took the education department to court, demanding that their results be released.
