The Board of Regents (BOR) of West Visayas State University (WVSU) has sought the help of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to get to the bottom of the leakage of questions for this year’s College Admission Test (CAT).

“We have already requested NBI to come into the picture,” Iloilo First District Representative Janette Garin, one of the BOR members, said during a press conference.

The investigation is still ongoing to determine how the questions were leaked among some aspiring WVSU students.

“It’s not yet 100 percent confirmed, but it’s gearing towards the direction that during a pilot testing, probably in Roxas [City, Capiz] or somewhere, may nagpicture ng [questions] at naleak sya doon sa ibang applicants,” said Garin.

To “eliminate undue advantage for specific individuals who may have benefitted from the leaked examination items,” the administration of WVSU and BOR decided to “invalidate” the admission test taken by nearly 21,000 students on March 10.

“There is reason to believe that the integrity of the examination has been compromised,” WVSU said in a statement.

The retake of CAT is set on April 14.

“Magkakaroon ng maraming venues. They (WVSU) will be coordinating with local governments and other schools and universities all throughout Region VI,” said Garin.IMT
