Who will do the math?
Something unprecedented has happened in goa. a total of 8,000 candidates appeared for a qualifying examination for 80 posts of accountant in the goa government, but all of them failed the test. all candidates who appeared for the test were graduates and were required to get a minimum of 50 marks out of the total 100. goa’s director of accounts issued a notification stating the same. The exam was held on January 7 this year. it was a five-hour examination. Questions were asked on English, general knowledge and accounts. The paper was set by the goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education, based on the syllabus prescribed by the accounts department. meanwhile, opposition parties have criticised the goa government, alleging irregularities and corruption. a revaluation of the answer papers is being proposed.
