Reportedly some of the questions in the science test paper given yesterday (15) have been provided to some students by a tuition master and students had discussed those before the exam.

Stalin said that similar incidents will bring down the students' trust on the examinations. The union has planned to complain to the Examination Commissioner and the Criminal Investigation Department today regarding the leak.

Meanwhile the Examination Department has received 15 complaints over the O/L examination that is currently underway.

Supervision teams have been placed at examination centers across the island to prevent students from cheating during the exam, local media reported.
