    Why not, in the future, install metal detectors, like in the airport, at every examination centre.

    There should't be any investigation, first of all using the mobile phone is already prohibited in the exam. The student should be punished.

    With the Internet we have information at our finger tips. It is time we had open book examinations in Sri Lanka. What is important is to know where the information is. It is pointless memorizing everything.

    Are we not sick of this word 'PROBE'? Everything and anything is being probed these days but we never see or hear of the results of these probes!

    That is not the point here! It has to do with honesty and integrity.
