An examination paper for a financial management course at the Singapore University of Social Sciences had to be voided last week after the university found that questions and answers had been leaked during two revision class conducted by an associate faculty member.
“SUSS will void the examination paper as the integrity of the examination assessment has been compromised,” said an SUSS spokesman.
The part-time lecturer teaches part-time students for the FIN303 Financial Management course. The final examination paper would have constituted 50 per cent of the final course grade.
The course is compulsory for full-time second-year students who are with SUSS’ School of Business, as well as second-year students studying human resource management. There are also part-time students taking the course as an elective module.
Students were given two options for the calculation of the final grade for the course. They could take their current overall continuous assessment score, or sit a supplementary paper on Dec 4.
