In a never before, every single one of 8000 candidates, who appeared for an exam for 80 posts of accountants conducted by the Goa government’s Directorate of Accounts, have failed. Reportedly, the directorate of accounts on August 21 announced that none of the candidates, who took the exam in January could clear the test. 


Not a single candidate could pass the exam

The initial recruitment exam held on January 7, 2018, was a five-hour long test comprising miscellaneous questions on English, General Knowledge and Accounts. The 100 marks test had a qualifying minimum of 50, which all candidates have failed to secure, revealed India Today

Reportedly, the directorate of accounts had advertised 80 posts of accountants in 2017, however, after the declaration of the dismal results, the directorate will now have to conduct fresh examinations Only graduates in Commerce and Arts who have studied Economics as a subject, were eligible for the examination. According to the Times of India, the final screening of the successful candidates was supposed to be done through an oral interview. Meanwhile, due to excess workload, the number of vacancies has been increased from 80 to 100.


Concerns over the result

An official of the Directorate has told the Times of India that the difficulty level of the tests was moderate and it was baffling as to why no one was able to secure even the qualifying marks. The government had started conducting a written test for the post of accountant since 2012. Another official who was part of the examination process in 2012 has claimed that the passing percentage of such exams has always been low. Yet such a shocking result was beyond prediction.

A former employee of the Directorate has expressed concerns over the professional efficiency of the recent recruits. “The quality of work is bad and the burden then falls on those who are proficient at their jobs. Some (new staffers) even lack basic knowledge of the subject, irrespective of their qualification,” the daily has quoted him as saying.

Moreover, Aam Aadmi Party’s Goa general secretary Pradeep Padgaonkar not only criticised the results but also said that it is a sad commentary on the “collapse” of the state education system. As quoted by India Today, he said, “It is a big shame on the Goa University and the commerce colleges that produce these graduates.”
