PRETORIA – Matric Mathematics Paper 2 leaked, initial indications are that the paper became available early Monday morning, just hours before the paper could be written.
The Department of Basic Education (DBE) said, “The origins of the leak are not clear as yet but the matric candidates who had access to the question paper appear to be located in the Limpopo and Gauteng provinces.”
The question paper that was circulating was found to be the same as the question paper that was due to be written at 09:00.
The Department of Basic Education is asking members of the public to come forth if they have any information on the matter.
The Department will investigate this matter fully and thoroughly and will utilize the mechanisms it has at its disposal which are part of the examination protocol to identify learners that may have had access to the paper.
The department has appealed to all candidates to remain focused on the examination papers that are still to be written and be assured “that the culprits at the centre of this despicable act will be dealt with harshly.”
