TWO trainee teachers have been caught allegedly selling Grade 10 national examinations “answer sheets” in East New Britain, police say.
Acting provincial police commander John Duadak confirmed that the incident occurred last Tuesday. The two are from the Gaulim Teachers’ College.
Daudak said the students at Malabunga Secondary School raised the alarm with the teachers after they were approached by the two to buy what they claimed to be “answer sheets” to Grade 10 examination papers.
The Grade 12 students began the national examinations last week and will continue this week.
Duadak said the students who were concerned about getting into trouble reported the matter to teachers.
Members of the community met to confront the two men but a church leader intervened and volunteered to take the two back to the teachers college to be referred to the principal.
Duadak said a formal report had been lodged with the Kokopo police station. Provincial education adviser Pius Gawi said he had not been informed about the two teachers. But he said the sale of examination documents concerned
Education secretary Dr Michael Tapo last Thursday said the Grade 10 examination “answer sheets” sold on the streets were fake and contained wrong answers.
