The Department of Basic Education has expressed its disappointment after the Matric Mathematics Paper II was leaked. The Department is still investigating the origins of the leak and has assured the public that the perpetrators will be dealt with harshly.
According to the Department of Basic Education, the “Mathematics Paper Two” exam was leaked on Monday morning, just hours before it was written.
The department said it was not sure how the leak occurred, but that the matric students who had entered the questionnaire were in Limpopo, Gauteng.
“The Department of Basic Education is investigating the matter to establish the extent of the leak. Early sources point to the confinement of the leakage to a few learners located in these two provinces,” the department said.
“The investigating team is gathering evidence and a report will be submitted shortly. The Department will enlist the support of the Law Enforcement Agencies to assist with the investigation.”
The department has called on anyone with information regarding the leak to come forward, guaranteeing anonymity for anyone who does so.

A similar incident happened back in 2018 when the Department of Basic Education was moved to distance themselves from a fake letter using their name, which claims the maths matric exams are “invalidated” due to a leaked question.
The government organisation moved to clear up the confusion, stating that no examination material has been leaked and that the letter claiming so is a fraud.
In the fake letter with the heading: “notice of illegal distribution of matric final examinations” the writer states that a mathematics question has leaked. This information is false. While the so-called circular has their logo, it has no address, contact details or the name of the author.
The department maintains that the letter exists solely to “cause confusion”, at a vital stage in these learners’ educational journey. As of 9:00 on Monday morning, the students sat Mathematics Paper 2, Mathematical Literacy P2 as well as Technical Mathematics P2.
Elijah Mhlanga is a spokesperson for Basic Education. He is imploring teachers, learners and parents to ignore the false communication, which contains little other information apart from the logo that could possibly link it back to them.
“We view this misleading communication in a very serious light, as it has the real potential of causing confusion and anxiety among our Grade 12 learners presently writing their examinations.”
“We urge parents, teachers, learners, and department officials to ignore the fake letter and stay focused on the job at hand. The Department of Basic Education together with all 9 provinces are monitoring the examinations on a constant basis to ensure that all goes well.”
