A-level paper 'leak' probed by Northern Ireland exam body

By Staff Reporter

It has been reported that an alleged leak from a business studies A-level paper is being investigated by CCEA, the body that sets exams in Northern Ireland.

The allegations include that some details from the CCEA A2 business studies paper, which candidates sat on Monday, June 12, were shared in advance on a private social media group.

CCEA chief executive Justin Edwards confirmed they were "aware of an allegation of malpractice".

The BBC reported last night that Mr Edwards said that the CCEA investigated all allegations of malpractice.

"We are aware of an allegation of malpractice in relation to the A2 business studies examination held last Monday," he told the BBC.

Sanctions for exam malpractice can include a loss of marks for an exam or even disqualification.
