THE Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development (MEHRD) has promised to find a better option on how to stop secondary school exam leakage.
Acting Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, James Bosamata, made the assurance when appearing before the parliamentary Public Accounts Committee (PAC) on Monday.
Bosamata admitted that exam leakage is a “big issue” and their Ministry will look into all options and decide on the best option to take to address the issue.
He said it appears the current arrangement is not working well and it has high possibility for leakage to happen.
Member of Parliament (MP) for Aoke-Langalanga and member of the PAC, Mathew Wale, raised the issue.
Wale said exam leakage is happening every year.
He said the penal code should be changed to include those implicated in exam leakage.
Wale, one time Minister for Education, said this affects our education system.
He said those who leaked exams should be severely punished
“We need to do something drastic about this,” Wale said.
He said this issue must be dealt with in order to safeguard the integrity of our education system.
