The Department of Basic Education (DBE) has revealed that the 2020 Maths paper two exam had been leaked, just hours before the exam, and they are currently establishing the source of the leak. If it is found that learners had access to the paper before they sat for the exam, then there is the potential for a rewrite - pending the current investigation.
