Maths A-level exam paper scrapped

A maths A-level exam paper due to be taken next week has been scrapped because of fears of a security breach. Edexcel says that its maths paper due to be taken on 21 June will now be substituted by another paper.

There were fears that copies of the planned maths paper had been made accidentally available to schools preparing for exams in Egypt. "We are confident that no student will be unfairly advantaged or disadvantaged," says the exam board.

The exam board says it will be contacting schools on Wednesday. A statement from Edexcel said: "On Monday, we were made aware of a potential security breach relating to some of our exam papers.

"The British Council, which is responsible for administering Edexcel exams in Egypt, had accidentally sent a small number of live exam papers to schools, inside sealed packets of past exam papers."‪
