The Jakarta Ombudsman says exams and answer keys were leaked prior to the administering of the national exams in Jakarta, Bekasi and Bekasi regency.

The Ombudsman’s acting head, Dominikus Dalu, said the leak originated from private learning assistance agencies. The exams were administered from March 19 to 27.

“Our team received such information and then we investigated the claims. We found that the [exams and answer keys] came from learning assistance agencies,” Dominikus said Wednesday.

However, Dominikus refused to disclose the agencies, but would send the report directly to the Jakarta Education Agency and West Java Education Agency region III.

Furthermore, the Ombudsman also alleges that several schools had leaked the answer keys as schools had received the exams and answer keys long before the start of the exams. (wnd)
