The Education Ministry yesterday pleaded to social media users to cease sharing national exam questions and answers online.
The ministry said sharing exam materials online could affect transparency and integrity and anyone caught could potentially face legal action.
“Recently, Facebook users and pages have been sharing the answers to this year’s national exam questions,” the ministry said in a statement. “This action really impacts the exam process that needs to be transparent.”
“The ministry will cooperate with relevant authorities to find the owners of these pages and accounts in order to take action on their illegal activity,” it added.
The Education Ministry last week reported that 115,268 students sat for the exam while 1,899 were absent.
The ministry said that in 2017, 63.84 percent of students passed the exam.
