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.
