Bloemfontein - A University of the Free State lecturer will face disciplinary action after the answers to an exam question were included on the paper, a spokesperson said on Wednesday.
Students wrote the second-year accounting paper on Tuesday, and English and Afrikaans versions were distributed, Lacea Loader said.
The answers to one question were included in the Afrikaans version, but not the English one, apparently by mistake.
"The matter was investigated and it was decided that the written test will be set aside and a new test, covering the same scope, will be compiled for all students."
The new test would be subjected to external moderation. The external moderation of tests in the affected department would take place until the end of the year.
According to the lecturer, it was a genuine mistake, Loader said.
University management decided on disciplinary action given the seriousness of the matter.
