These students will have to retake exams in one or more modules. A spokesperson for the ROC of Amsterdam said that an anonymous tip came in, and that further inquiry showed exam results to be suspiciously high. Education inspectors have been notified. Employees, professors and students at ROC will be questioned by the Bureau of Investigations, the results of which may lead to an official report being filed. last year, eleven students were placed under trial for a large fraud case at the Ibn Ghaldounschool in Rotterdam in which 17.000 students had to retake a French exam. The Public Prosecution Service (OM) will declare a sentence today.
