“Others even used other answer booklets different from the council’s own. But, we discovered these things during marking because the booklets do not have our serial numbers and they are not usually signed by the supervisors.

“Supervisors usually sign the booklets before they are given to the candidates.

“As an examination body we are taking drastic action on all those schools that appeared on this list and also their results are going to be penalized, as we are fighting for good and quality education in Sierra Leone.
