Police have arrested two people on suspicion of leaking the Bagrut maths test, Israel radio reported on Sunday. 

The leak emerged a few days before the test when a teacher was told by one of her students that the questions were available on Facebook, and she reported it to the police.

As a result, the Education Ministry was forced to change the test at the last minute which caused problems in distribution of the test. A ministry internet site from which headmasters  were supposed to retrieve it crashed under the load and in addition various schools had problems caused by the need to print the test at the last minute.  Tests are usually delivered already printed by the post office.
