Chapter 13 : The National Examination Irregularities Committee (NEIC)

79. Release of results under investigation


(1) The assessment body must ensure that irregularities are finalised before the release of the results, thus ensuring that results that are withheld are based on firm evidence of an irregularity having occurred.


(2) However, in cases where the nature of the irregularity is of such a nature that it cannot be finalised before the release of the results, the results of these candidates must be withheld pending further investigation.


(3) If a candidate is found to be irregular in one subject, only the results of that subject must be withheld.


(4) Candidates that were found guilty of an irregularity must be recorded on the system and such information must be made available to all assessment bodies.
