The Daily Record is reporting that pupils hacked into a teacher’s email to steal the answers to a maths exam.
But the five teenagers were caught when they all ended up with exceptional results in the prelim.
It found the fourth year pupils somehow got hold of a teacher’s username and password and logged into their email account.
South Ayrshire Council education boss Douglas Hutchison said: “These exams are there to help pupils measure their progress and let staff know what needs to be done to get pupils ready for the actual exams later in the year.
“The only losers are the pupils involved but we will continue to work with them to ensure they are ready for the SQA exams.”
