A-level exam ‘leaks’: Fury after maths and economics papers are ‘disclosed’ hours before tests
Teachers have reacted in anger after exam papers in maths and economics were apparently leaked hours before 60,000 pupils took their exams.
Details of the A-level Edexcel paper Maths C4 which was taken on Friday by 50,000 pupils, and an another paper Economics 3, taken last Monday by 10,000 students, were allegedly seen on an online forum. Pearson, which runs the Edexcel exam board, said all students would be marked fairly.
Today the head of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) union, Mary Bousted, said the apparently leaked papers were yet more evidence the exam system in the UK is broken.
