“Police informed us that the distribution had occurred after the examination had started. It has been revealed that the suspect had received the questions at 9.15 a.m. Someone may have transmitted the questions using a mobile device,” he said.
Sri Lanka Examinations department commenced an investigations into an incident where a Tuition master (Ranasinghe) has allegedly distributed leaflets stating that he had already discussed several questions in a seminar which were included in the second part of 2017 Advanced Level chemistry paper.
A tuition master (Ranasinha, doing classes in Nugegoda Rotary, Kurunegala, Ratnapura & several places islandwide) who conducts classes for chemistry has had distributed these leaflets in front of Ratnaveli Balika Vidyalaya in Gampaha requesting the students to compare the paper he had provided at a seminar and the 2017 A/L original paper which the students had just faced.
Then the students had noticed the similarity in three questions with real paper and distributed leaflet.
Tuition master had said paper was discussed at one of his seminars. The examinations commissioner general noted that a complain had been lodged at the police headquarters on this matter.
Leaflets are usually distributed by representatives of tuition teachers in the close proximity to the exam centers, even though it is a punishable offence.
