    As usual. They have found others to pile the blame on. What can you expect when buffoons handle education.

    Too many cooks will spoil the soup

    even with the oil fiasco it was the same. First denial then slowly when pressure built up they confessed and found a scapegoat.

    Or dear, Isn't there any validation to detect duplicate entries? It is hard to accept this. It should give 'unique index violation' exception.

    Hiraz Tuesday, 03 January 2012 11:36 AM

    SB said there was a problem in the computers..HAHAA

    Manjula J Tuesday, 03 January 2012 11:36 AM

    If three Data Entry Operators can spoil whole process, how can we rely on these results? Even in a normal org. there are few steps to avoid mistakes, which could happen in Data Entry process. Why Examination Dept. can't adopt these simple steps to avoid BIG mistakes...

    Regi Tuesday, 03 January 2012 08:59 AM

    Now they have found the scapegoat.

    O.L.Morondan Tuesday, 03 January 2012 10:41 AM

    So the problem is solved. Appoint them as ambassadors to a foreign counties.

    udeni Tuesday, 03 January 2012 10:31 AM

    Wasn't there a supervisor to distribute the work and check the data entry?

    bigsam Tuesday, 03 January 2012 10:30 AM

    Yes, blame the lowest ranked people and avoid responsibility!

    kola Tuesday, 03 January 2012 10:07 AM

    so, No one Double checked??

    Just Another Citizen Tuesday, 03 January 2012 10:03 AM

    So no one really double checks anything right?

    Appuhamy Tuesday, 03 January 2012 09:42 AM

    why there is no check & control

    Miserable Student Tuesday, 03 January 2012 09:44 AM

    citizen Tuesday, 03 January 2012 08:55 AM

    At Last Found a reason................. Miracle of asia....................
