Minister Ligia Deca stated, on Thursday, about the topics at the Baccalaureate that appeared in the public space that many of these photos were taken with microscopic cameras, located in buttons, and microscopic headphones were used that are very difficult to detect by the commissions. She wanted to specify that in every case in which the topics came out in the public space, during the exam, never before the students entered the classrooms, the topics were not public, so the integrity of the national assessment or the Baccalaureate exam was not affected .
Minister Ligia Deca stated about the situations in which the subjects of the national exams appeared in the public space while they were taking place that in each such case, they identified the centers from which the subjects were made public, because those exam papers mention the number of the center .
“In each such case, we conducted investigations through the inspectorates. In some cases, the examination board was replaced, in other cases, I understand that the Public Prosecutor’s Office was notified in such cases. What we must avoid in the future is the use of advancing technology, unfortunately, affecting the integrity of the National Exams. I understand that many of these photos were taken with microscopic, button-mounted cameras. It is about microscopic headphones, which are at the level of the ear and are very difficult to detect by the Commissions”, said Deca, quoted by News.ro.
She specified that in such cases they also need the help of technology to avoid such situations.
“In every case where the subjects came out in the public space, during the exam, never before the students entered the classrooms, the subjects were not public. So the integrity of the national assessment or the Baccalaureate exam was not affected. However, even where they came out before their official publication by the Ministry of Education, we carried out investigations and measures were taken”, she pointed out.
The minister mentioned that, “considering the technological advance, it is quite difficult to identify”.
“We will have a discussion at the level of state institutions and see how we can prevent such things in the future. Before, mobile phones were used, those are not allowed. In the case of these types of equipment, we have to find another way of prevention”, she said.
