"Our investigative team is tracking these websites and have discovered their modus operandi which includes enticing students to part with money for questions including past questions and posting of the actual questions in social media."


Mr. Ohene Mantey stated that after receiving the actual questions, they are solved and posted in Whatsapp groups.


Also, some invigilators and supervisors have been asked to discontinue their roles while investigations are being conducted into their alleged involvement in examination malpractices at some centres.
