Form Five students sitting for the Social Studies paper at Ledumang Senior Secondary on Wednesday were nearly furnished with a French paper, but a vigilant invigilator swiftly realised the mistake.

The South East Region director in the Ministry of Education and Skills Development, Benson Rauwe, confirmed the incident. Rauwe said they were aware of the incident where papers, which were stored in the same area, ended up being mixed up. He however would not be dragged into discussing the matter and referred The Monitor to the Botswana Examinations Council (BEC) for more details.

The BEC corporate communications manager, Fingile Makgalemele, also confirmed the incident but said the situation was not bad as the students had not seen the content of the paper.  “The teacher who was invigilating mistakenly opened a wrong paper, but they realised before they distributed it,” she said. Makgalemele said the incident is being investigated as to what could have caused the mistake. She further said they have not experienced any other problems.
