Keikotlhae added that the problem was not nationwide. He would not say whether the probe was also looking into private centres or any candidates who sat the Botswana General Certificate of Secondary Examinations (BGCSE)

a later stage.

Meanwhile, BEC said it would release a statement to bring the public up to date on the release of BGCSE results "soon". In addition to conventional school examinations, BEC offers examination services to private centres which enrol candidates who re-write exams to improve their grades.
