    We had a uniform email sent round the college alerting us of the error in P4 and the theft of P5.

    What!! This is an absolute lie! The examiners are not stupid to send the exam papers by van. That's a complete nonsense.

    The exam papers are released on the web one hour before the exams and the colleges download them from the web and so the exams are printed at the college.

    That's what you've seen at the exam hall. They are just exaggerating the security of the papers

    As someone who works at a school. This is 100% not true.

    They are preprinted and delivered or posted to the school.

    There is a fair chance of it coming up my friend, but don't put all your eggs in one basket!

    I'm pretty sure even teachers don't have access to them. If you are an examiner then you are right

    They don't go anywhere near teachers. They get sent recorded delivery and the exam officer has to sign for them. They are then locked in a cupboard and are gotten out when the exam is. They are only opened on the day of the exam.

    I'm pretty sure if the exam officer is found to have taken the paper out before hand they are liable to prosecution
