TWO MEN ARRESTED IN A-LEVEL EXAM LEAK INVESTIGATION

Posted by ALPHA88 CHARITY | Jan 12, 2019

Two men have been arrested as part of an investigation into an A-level maths exam security breach, which led the Edexcel board to withdraw and replace a second A-level paper over fears it had also been leaked.

The Metropolitan police said two men aged 29 and 32 were arrested on Monday on suspicion of theft. The men have been released under investigation while inquiries continue.

The potential leak was uncovered during an investigation at an unnamed school earlier suspected of being the source of an A-level maths paper that was being offered for sale via social media this month.

Pearson, Edexcel’s parent company,ALPHA88 replaced a further maths paper with a new version as a precaution two days before 7,000 pupils took the exam last Thursday.
