Some senior officials were involved in cheating in an examination to recruit teaching assistants nationwide in January, the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) has found. 

A source from the DSI team handling the case said the agency's probe indicates Education Ministry executives in Bangkok were linked to the case.

The ministry's order to switch the exam organiser from the Educational Service Area Offices to the Office of Basic Education Commission (Obec) was suspicious. The order could be made only by senior officials at the ministry, the source said.
