newsNetwerk24 reports that the examinations of thousands of students at Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges nationwide have been postponed by ten days after some exam papers leaked out.  

The students will now have to wait while new papers are printed and distributed to exam centres.  The Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) confirmed on Thursday that eight papers that would have been written this week were leaked.  The subjects affected are Mathematics N2, N3, N4, N5 and N6, Engineering Science N2 and N3 and Electro Technical N4.  The new exam dates have already been sent to colleges and students.  The results will be made known in time so that students who pass their exams can proceed to the next level.  The exam schedule for other subjects remains unchanged.  The Hawks are investigating the source of the leaks.
