Down fall in candidates appearing for TET exams this year


The Maharashtra’s Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) held to fill up vacancies for the teaching staff in all the mediums of State Government’s   Primary and Secondary Schools  has this year seen a huge drop in registration of candidates for the examinations.

According to information this year the number of aspiring candidates had dropped to a considerable fifteen thousand. Till the last date of registration only seven thousand, one hundred and fifty three aspiring candidates had registered for the examination. Last year around twenty three thousand candidates had applied from Nagpur District for TET exam.

From last year the administration has made TET examinations compulsory for D.Ed and B.Ed candidates for being eligible for teaching post. This year the administration had put up registration facility in the various Talukas for increasing the strength of the registration. However, not many turned up for the same, citing affordability of fees reasons.

The rectification in the application forms of the candidates can be done online till November 10, 2014. The hard copy of the same must be presented at the application centre. Last year the passing percentage of the TET was very less. Only 3 per cent could clear the examination.
