Are exam papers being sold in your country?

Ros Atkins Ros Atkins | 15:03 UK time, Tuesday, 8 May 2007

We got a post on the blog yesterday from William in Liberia. This is it.

'Dear BBC,
I am very much troubled by the recent 12th Grade Exams that were conducted in my country Liberia. How can more than three students share one question sheet? Even the officials were involved in the sale of test questions before the administration of the test. What a shame. I demand that the entire exam administration resign and be replaced with individuals who will demonstrate high degree of trust and reliability. '

I read it on air, and we immediately got a massive response from across Africa, with more and more stories of corruption in schools. We'll hear some of your experiences, and try and get some explanations and solutions as well. We're hoping to have the Liberian Education Minister among our guests.

Do you know of corruption in your country's schools? Do you know of people buying exam papers or teachers leaking exam information?
