A-level maths leak referred by police to prosecutors

Police have referred an A-level maths paper leak to prosecutors, says an exam board.

Pearson, owner of the Edexcel exam board, says the case sent to the Crown Prosecution Service relates to a leak from an exam taken in summer 2017.

The exam board says the maths paper was seen by a “very small number” of candidates when it was put online in advance of students sitting the exam.

A separate A-level maths leak in 2018 is still under investigation.

In response to the leaks, 14 exam candidates were disqualified in 2017 and a further 15 were disqualified in 2018, says Pearson.
