A PROTESTING party at a prominent school in Labasa whose tudents were awarded zero after they allegedly cheated their exam papers are calling on the Ministry of Education to be transparent.
This follows the Ministry of Education's decision not to reveal evidence of malpractice and cheating in the students' biology papers.
Protesting party spokesman Rajesh Lal said they had been told by officials that an enquiry team would look into the matter.
"We are worried about whether the team will pass their conclusions based wholly on their analysis of the papers or will they be fair enough to come out here in Labasa and interview the examiners, students and the principal of the school to have a clear background of the issue before making a decision," Mr Lal said.
"We are talking about the future of our children here and we want the enquiry team to visit the school in the north and talk with the examination officials to get a fair idea of what transpired."
Minister for Youth and Sports Commander Viliame Naupoto had earlier told this paper that evidence of the cheating or the malpractice would not be made available to the public.
