Three invigilators at the Fezeka Secondary School in Gugulethu were suspended after allegedly allowing learners to cheat during two Senior Certificate examinations.
According to the Western Cape Education Department (WCED) preliminary evidence suggests that learners were allowed to copy from textbooks and notes during their Afrikaans Second Language and Economics examinations.
They believe that the allegations are extremely disappointing and view cheating in a very serious light and actions that will be taken would be in line with the conduct of senior certificate examinations.
“Clearly if learners were also in those classrooms then that means their results are also in jeopardy, and that matter is also being investigated further,” says Deputy-Director General of the Western Cape Education Department Brian Schreuder.
Fezeka Senior Secondary school could not be reached for comment.
