A nasty surprise for cheating matrics
A nasty surprise is waiting for Western Cape matrics suspected of cheating. Their results will not be published in newspapers. Provincial deputy director-general for education Brian Schreuder says his department is investigating at least 40 incidents of irregularities. These include pupils using crib-notes. He says in cases where pupils have been caught in exam venues, investigations have already been finalised. Irregularities found during the marking process could not be finalised because pupils were on holiday and couldn't be reached.
