CHEATING by students in national examinations is decreasing and should be a thing of the past from next year, according to Education Secretary Dr Uke Kombra.
He told the Grade 12 at the Port Moresby National High School graduation ceremony that cheating had been an issue in schools in the past six years.
“This year, we were able to contain and control the examination system,” Kombra said.
“We have less issue about examination cheating or leaked examination papers and that’s an achievement.”
He encouraged the students not to cheat to gain good marks.
“Those who cheat can pass the exams but they will fail in real life,” Kombra said.
He said police had arrested some people involved in examination cheating.
“If students want to cheat next year, be careful, you will be caught,” Kombra said.
He said the education system had produced a lot of engineers, doctors, lawyers and intelligent people.
“If you work hard and follow the right path you will achieve your dream and you will be satisfied that you earned it,” Kombra said.
