Exam board Edexcel has launched an investigation into how part of an A-level maths paper was leaked online. Blacked out images of two questions were shared on social media on Thursday afternoon. Pearson, which runs Edexcel, said the images were circulated "in a very limited way" shortly before Friday's Maths Paper 3 exam. It reassured students no-one would be advantaged or disadvantaged and they would not have to re-sit the paper.

Pearson said it had taken action to identify the source of the breach and was "determined to identify the individual involved". Full story
