Ministry Checking if Math Matriculation Test Leaked

The Education Ministry said, Thursday, that it will carry out a thorough investigation into an unconfirmed report that a student in the northern part of the country used his cellphone to photograph the questions for the mathematics matriculation exam in order to get outside help, according to a Thursday-evening report by Channel 2 Television. The station said the student sent the photograph, appealing for help in the name of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

The ministry said it did not know about the specific instance of the cellphone. The integrity of the test was challenged by disorder in a number of places around the country, among other things.
