Seeing the examination paper before the exams

Q: I just wanted to know if a teacher of a school is handing out assignments to a kid and by accident she puts one of the coming up test in that portfolio, if the kid practices that test paper (e.g. works on the maths sums) before the test so they know how to do it, is it haraam?

A: If the examination board allows it then it is permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
