Exam leak pupils safe.

THE pupils at the centre of the Leaving Cert leak inquiry will not be penalised, it was revealed yesterday.

But the National Bureau of Criminal Investigation has launched an inquiry into allegations that their teacher had access to the aural Irish test.

Many of the subjects the teacher advised them to study came up in the exam.

But the Department of Education and Science has decided that the 20 pupils at the Co Meath school will not be penalised when they collect their results along with thousands of others tomorrow.

The department carried out a detailed study into the students' results.

It concluded that there was not enough evidence from the level of results to deprive the students of the marks they achieved in their aural exam.
