Matric fraud rocks top Western Cape school
Allegations of exam fraud at one of the Western Cape's most-prominent high schools have sent shockwaves through the province's education and matriculation circles. The results of at least 56 pupils are now in jeopardy. Matriculants at Bellville High School and parents were told at a special meeting on Tuesday night that a teacher at the school had apparently tampered with the answer sheets for the Computer Studies practical-exam paper. The teacher has been suspended pending an investigation by the Western Cape department of education. He could also face criminal charges. School principal Johan Crous did not want to confirm the teacher’s identity.
