Prison for exam leakers

TWO officials from China's top examination authority have been jailed for leaking exam papers.

The Xicheng District People's Court in Beijing sentenced the former head of National Education Examinations Authority's research and assessment department, identified as Yu, to two years in prison for disclosing papers for the 2007 medical professional qualification exams to a friend surnamed Wang, yesterday's Beijing Evening News reported.

Yu's colleague Meng, a former vice division chief of the exam authority, was jailed for three years for revealing three years of dental professional qualification exam papers to a friend, also surnamed Wang, a professor at Sichuan University's West China College of Stomatology.

Professor Wang ran a private exam review course and gave the questions and answers to his students. The 2007 exam for dental and medical professionals had to be canceled at a cost of 70 million yuan (US$10.25 million).

Professor Wang was jailed for three years.

The court also jailed two people from an exam review institute for disclosing an architect license exam paper to their students.

One of the two got two years and the other two years with probation. They bought the paper from an exam institute in Shenzhen in 2007.
