A PRIMARY school teacher was charged on Tuesday with eight counts of forging Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) Tamil language answer scripts of three students last October.
Shanti Krishnasamy, 39, is accused of forging the pupils' answer scripts intending to deceive the markers of the PSLE Tamil papers into believing that they were given by the students.
The alleged offences took place at a school in the northern part of Singapore on Oct 5 last year.
She was apparently invigilating the examination when the alleged offences took place.
It is alleged that she went through the three students' answer scripts and made the amendments before submitting them to her supervisor.
She was represented by Mr Anand Nalachandran, who said he had just been briefed. She is out on $10,000 bail and her passport was impounded.
A pre-trial conference will be held on Feb 20.
If convicted she faces a jail term of up to seven years and a fine on each count of forgery.
