A-level maths paper is leaked online ahead of tests for third year in a row, sparking probe by exam chiefs


EXAM chiefs are investigating after an A-level maths paper was leaked online for the third year in a row.

Exam body Edexcel, owned by Pearson, confirmed that “blacked-out images” of two questions had circulated on social media before yesterday’s test.

Pictures went viral on Twitter with a message inviting students to get in touch “if you want tomorrow’s A-level maths, stats and mechanics paper 3 exam”.

Roughly 60,000 students took Edexcel’s maths A-level, which consisted of three papers over last week and this week.

Last year another EdExcel maths exam was leaked to students on social media.

EdExcel said last June that they were looking into a “breach of security” and working with police on the investigation.


But students had reacted furiously over claims that the answers were being sold online for £300 ahead of sitting the test.
