Accountancy Blunder for 207 Students

Yesterday, 16 South Dublin schools fell victim to yet more exam blunders from the State Examinations Commission. Half of the paper was missing.

It was only higher level papers that were dodgy. 207 of them. Students were told to carry on with whatever they had in front of them whilst the mess was sorted out. So shades of 2009 all over again.

Were you one of the unlucky 207? The SEC released a statement last night saying “Shit Happens”. Well, i might be paraphrasing. So they’ve got no sympathy for you, you won’t get any special treatment and you’re expected to just deal with it and put up with their mistakes.

This is Ireland after all, the land where mistakes go unpunished at the top, and the consequences of those mistakes delegated to those at the bottom.
