“The detection and investigations were done before the days set for those examinations.
“Management immediately informed the Examination Office at Cambridge in the United Kingdom, who responded promptly and emailed confidentially to the academy new examination papers to replace the papers that were tampered with,” reads a communiqué to parents and guardians dated may 11, 2023.
The head teacher says accordingly, all the students sat the new set of examination papers in the three subjects as such the security breach would have no effect on the integrity of the examinations.
According to Lambert-Knott, this was an isolated incident hence the prompt detection and investigations.
“The Board of Governors and management have put in place even more stringent measures to ensure that such a breach does not happen again,” further said the head teacher.
Kamuzu Academy is an elite centre of academic excellence founded by the country’s founding President Kamuzu Banda in 1981.
