Letter about leaked matric paper a fake

The Central Applications Clearing House (CACH) is an online application service for matriculants, who struggled to secure a place at the educational institution of their choice.

THE Department of Basic Education has distanced itself from a letter making reference to a Mathematics question paper.

In the fake letter, with the heading: “NOTICE OF ILLEGAL DISTRIBUTION OF MATRIC FINAL EXAMINATIONS”, the writer claims a mathematics question has been leaked.

The department said the information is false.

“While the so-called circular has our logo, it has no address, contact details or the name of the author. It is clearly designed to cause confusion”.

“We view this misleading communication in a very serious light, as it has the real potential of causing confusion and anxiety among our Grade 12 learners presently writing their examinations,” the department said on Monday.

It urged parents, teachers, learners, and department officials to ignore the fake letter and stay focused on the job at hand.

“We call upon our learners and teachers alike to continue to demonstrate commitment and good conduct as the examinations continue.”

The department said all nine provinces are monitoring the examinations on a constant basis to ensure that all goes well.
