Ministry probing claims of exam leaks

KUALA LUMPUR - The Education Ministry's Examination Syndicate is investigating claims that Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) questions were leaked to students.

The syndicate said it had received complaints of leaks for the Mathematics and Additional Mathematics papers.

"We immediately started investigations to determine whether these complaints are true.

"Immediate action will also be taken after the investigations are completed," the syndicate said in a statement.

However, the syndicate did not mention when the investigations would conclude.

It added that there were procedures to ensure that examinations are "carried out with integrity", such as conducting checks at examination centres throughout the country before and during the examination period.

"We also have a 'flying squad' to improve security measures during the examination period, and a task force to receive public complaints and feedback," said the syndicate.

Education director-general Tan Sri Abd Ghafar Mahmud said students should not panic as the allegations of leaks have yet to be proven.
