Polokwane - Two Polokwane matric pupils who allegedly tried to buy examination papers were released on bail by a Limpopo court on Monday.

The two Saint Ignatius College pupils appeared in the Thabamoopo Magistrate's Court after being arrested on Friday following a trap set by education officials and police.

Police said the two pupils faced corruption charges after planning to buy Mathematics and Physical Science papers at a cost of R2 000 each.

The two were not asked to plead, and the case was postponed to November 11 for further investigation.

Both were released on R500 bail each.

    “Mathematics and Physical Science papers at a cost of R2 000 each”…….yes, I can see why these papers would command a higher asking price than say a language paper. However, apart from cracking an A+, one with the aid of fast laser printers now days could see a decent return on initial investment too

    What a spineless headline, though. It has been well-established that these two pupils did in fact try to buy the papers, their court case has been wel documented... why the hell refer to them as ''alleged''?

      Wonder if "Corruption" is also one of their subjects or do they just start off that young.. seems it's in the genes.
