Up to 75,000 grade 10 students across the country will sit for their written expression exams today.

Education Minister Jimmy Uguro told the Post-Courier yesterday that the exams will begin at 8am today, and all schools would comply with the new Covid-19 measures.

“I encourage students to be punctual at their exam venues and also call on parents to assist their children so that they comply with all Covid protocols,” he said.

"It’s also up to the school administration to arrange the sitting arrangements so that there is space for social distancing.

“But I also want to assure the students and parents that these measures will not affect the exams in any way,” he said.

Mr Urugo also issued a stern warning for students to not cheat in their exams and also warned that teachers who are caught aiding will be dealt with.

“Cheating is unfair and unhealthy to others who have followed due processes,” he said.

“I have also instructed the Education Department to deal with those involved in illegal practices in any exams to come starting with the Written Expression one and the others.”

“With that said, the Grade 10 Written Expression Exam will be normal and I wish all the best for the students in Papua New Guinea sitting for the exams.”
