I understand your need to maintain a facade of ethnic pride when somebody from the outside critiques one of your country's venerable institutions, but in this case it is not me that is leveling the critique. It is the newspaper.<quoted text>
Simple accounting exam?
Then you don't know what you're talking about.
The question papers are very difficult and even the Math paper in stage I is of quite a high standard.
Even the entrance exam papers to the management institutes are very stiff before which GMAT is child's play.
I know accounting can be difficult - not everyone has the aptitude or the focus. Its a specialty. However, one has to ask the logical question why any exam has such a deplorable pass rate. It is only math, you know. Certainly there should be no scarcity of math proficient people in your country. Obviously something is not working, either the exam is irrelevant, or the prep is irrelevant. Sounds to me, based on the article, that it may be the latter with a little bit of the former.
