Dec 16, Colombo: Sri Lanka Commissioner General of Examinations N.K.M.J. Pushpakumara says the police Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has been directed to probe the reported leak of questions in the Science Part - I paper of the 2012 G.C.E. (Ordinary Level) examination which is being held now.

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.

Ceylon Teachers' Union Chairman Joseph Stalin Fernando told media that a tuition teacher in Gampaha area had given a model paper with exactly similar diagrams and questions ahead of the examination and some students had discussed the paper before the examination.

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.
