The examinations department has commenced investigations into an incident where a tuition master has allegedly distributed leaflets stating that he had already discussed several questions which were included in the second part of this year’s Advanced Level chemistry paper.
He had said it was discussed at one of his seminars.
The examinations commissioner general, W.M.N.J. Pushpakumara noted that a complain had been lodged at the police headquarters on this matter.
Leaflets are usually distributed by representatives of tuition teachers in the close proximity to the exam centers, even though it is a punishable offence.
A tuition master who conducts classes for chemistry has had distributed these leaflets in front of Ratnaveli Balika Vidyalaya in Gampaha requesting the students to compare the paper he had provided at a seminar and the A/L paper which the students had just faced.
Then the students had noticed the similarity in those questions.
