Two of the five teaching appointment exams which were postponed after the questions were mistakenly posted online ahead of time last week take place today.
Physics and religious studies examinations will take place on Friday with chemistry, physical education and computer science held on Saturday. All will be held between 3pm and 6pm.
Education Minister Costas Kadis said the examinations, even with the serious problem that arose, will be completed “and that in September we will have new teachers selected by the new selection system, based on their knowledge, skills, qualifications and experience”.
Talking about the administrative inquiry into how the exam questions were leaked, Kadis said that at first glance it appears that the early disclosure of the 6 November examination questions was attributable to a human error, and was not deliberate.
“The problem was only on that one day and all the previous days the examinations were carried out smoothly,” he added.
The Cabinet of Ministers decided on Wednesday to appoint an investigating officer to look into the leak.
Attorney-General Costas Clerides told the Cyprus News Agency he also expects the audit services to look into the matter to get a full picture of the events.
Auditor-General’s Odysseas Michaelides posted on his twitter account that his report should be completed on Friday.
