What to do if the wrong question paper is given to candidates

If the wrong question paper packet is opened and given to students, your staff should do two things:

1.  Make sure that affected students remain supervised under exam conditions, even if other students have finished.  This is to make sure that any work they have done on the wrong paper can be accepted by the board, if necessary         they can be given the correct paper and so confidentiality agreements can be signed.

2.  Contact the exam board for specific instructions.  Your centre is unlikley to have experienced this before, but the exam board has, so they will be able to advise you on what to do next.
