Students slam KEA on Facebook wall

The Karnataka Examination Authority’s (KEA) Facebook page has opened a flood of comments from students, who slam the authority for faulty evaluation, problems with answer scripts and other issues. The students have pointed out how even the OMR answer scripts, which were supposed to be error-free, are fraught with mistakes. Looking at the number of comments, the page on the social networking site has become a hit.

KEA, which conducts the Common Entrance Test, launched the Facebook page to keep the students updated about its decisions and important events. Launched last month, it has been attracting a lot of parents and students, who have realised that their problems could be heard with posts on the page.

The students and parents said that earlier too they faced problems, but they went unheard. “Complaints like errors in valuation work and others are lodged on the Facebook wall. As KEA has introduced the online counseling system for the first time, students are posing several questions,” said Ramesh S.R., a career consultant. KEA has put out the list of students who are allotted ranking on its website with their registration numbers.

Some comments on the FB wall

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
