Panaji, August 22: None of the 10,000 candidates who sat for the Goa government’s directorate of accounts exam, have cleared the test. The results of the exam for 80 posts of accountants were announced on Tuesday. “I hereby declare that no candidate who appeared for the initial recruitment examination for the post of accountant (direct recruits) held on January 01, 2018, has secured the minimum qualifying marks necessary for passing,” director of accounts Prakash Pereira told Hindustan Times.

The report said that the difficulty level in the exam was on par with other tests held for government service posts. In spite of that, none of the applicants could pass the exam.

It must be noted that only candidates who held a bachelor’s degree in commerce or arts with economics could apply for the examination.

Now, the posts will be readvertised by Directorate of Accounts.

How can this be possible?” Amarnath Panjikar of Congress told HT.
