Addis Ababa, August 17, 2013 – Officials from the Ministry of Education have attempted to disassociate students and parents from all over the country, following the results of more than 300,000 students attending the 12th Graduate Entrance Exams, showing amazing levels of progress.

The students complained about the fact that students in the country were not properly assessed on a number of disciplines, in particular, the "Reading Ability" course. The collective failure of most students in this course is a prime example of an erroneous pricing.

A communiqué published on the official Facebook page of the Ministry has acknowledged the mistakes made in the evaluation of the ability to read examinations and promised to correct them soon. Prior to the announcement, director of the National Assessment and Evaluation Agency (NEAEA), Araja Gebrezbybcher, said the EBC had been "mistaken in scanning" to state media outlets. "We realized that there was a problem immediately," he said. "Students who regularly register 60% or 70% of the results will not be able to earn an average of 10%."

Last weekend excitement began when NEAEA announced that students could access their academic results through the website. Within the next few days, something went wrong as the 12th grade students complained to the official NEAEA official site for a review of their test results. The results for many students can jeopardize their admission and uncertainty has caused many people to become angry. On Wednesday August 14, hundreds of parents and students gathered at the headquarters of the Ministry of Education in Addis Ababa demanding explanation.

The assessment is based on the words of Araia Gebrzybaer, Director of NEAEA, with the use of automated software with "malicious" keys. Four days after the results were announced, the Ministry of Education acknowledged the mistakes and said that the results would see results for nearly 150,000 students.

A teacher from South Hosston, Ethiopia, Meseret Abera, went to Addis Ababa on a 230-kilometer road to file a complaint. He was among the crowd gathered before the NEAEA building and talked to the local EthioTimes office. "My son was the best performer in life. It has come to 10thousand class exams. It was hard to believe that he would get an unexpectedly low 22%. "

Another parent has called on the EC to reconsider its practices. "It is very shameful to hear that the machine does not work properly because it's experiencing this emotional excitement across the country. The government should review the entire process. "

When his office was bombed with complaints from around the country, Minister of Education Tilayet Goethe Ambae (PhD) promised to solve problems at the beginning of this week. "When we complain about your Scholastic Aptitude Test results, NEAEA will look at it for the second time and come back to you," he said on his Twitter account.

Today, the official representative of NEAEA
there is a notice on the website that high school students have made changes to their learning flexibility
the exam is being re-published on his website, but he has still refused
Recognize that there may be mistakes in relation to other exams.

Hundreds of thousands of secondary school pupils have not made any definitive statements about what they are being charged with for fiasco or NEAEA. However, social media websites, such as Facebook, continued to announce that members of several student groups needed other revisions, such as English, math and civil disciplines. Someone believes that a random outcry that reflects the results of students who have scored 100 points on some subjects reaches 10 to 20, but the ministry believes that technical mistakes occur only in the textbook's assessment. Of course, many are not sure. AS
