Days after news broke that the exam paper had been leaked before the sitting, the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) pointed to Jamaica as the source of the breach despite initial claims that it had occurred in Guyana.
At that time, CXC registrar and Chief Executive Officer Dr Wayne Wesley said: “The security measures that CXC has put in place have led to us to locating the country as Jamaica and the examinations centre there where the leak originated.”
But Wesley refused to name the centre, or even the parish in Jamaica, where the leak occurred.
On Wednesday, senior officials of Jamaica’s Ministry of Education said they were unable to comment on the matter, which was still being investigated, but indicated that an update should be provided by the Overseas Examinations Commission (OEC) shortly.
While up to press time there was no word from the OEC, Jamaica Observer sources said that this should become a police matter in a matter of days.
