DHERST Secretary calls for leaded Gr.12 results to be investigated

Secretary for Department of Higher Education, Research Science and Technology Fr Jan Czuba has called on the authorities to investigate the person who has leaked the final grade 12 results of all Secondary and High Schools throughout the country on Social Media.

The Secretary was disappointed after learning that a link to a PDF file containing names of students and other information including their marks scored in the National Exam was shared on the social media medium, Facebook on Monday 18th December 2017.

Fr Czuba described the act as morally and ethically wrong when someone intentionally exposed students’ marks without their consent.

“Students marks are confidential and it should not be put out in public for everyone to see without the students consent and I believe someone working within the Department of Education has leaked out this very important information”.

He also clarified that the DHERST does not keep copies of students marks in PDF Files, now that the Department has a new Online Selection system where students information are stored in the software.

“We have issued passwords to all institutions to have access to their school only and not other schools so that PDF file did not come from this office”.

Meanwhile, this newsrooms office attempts to get the Department of Education to respond on this matter was unsuccessful. PNGFM/PNG Today
