The verdict is inline with the commendation of the State’s Examination Ethics Disciplinary Committee.

Directives have been issued to the Post-Primary Education Board to effect the promotion suspension for the affected teachers.
Also, Principals, examination officers of 13 public secondary schools including a private school found wanting of carrying out examination misconduct will be given warning letters PPEB.
