Assam TET Requirement Lifted for Graduate, Postgraduate Teacher Recruitment
The Cabinet of the Assam government has given its approval to a significant decision concerning the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET). In a move aimed at expediting the teacher recruitment process, the requirement for Graduate Teachers (GT) and Post Graduate Teachers (PGT) at Secondary Schools to undergo the TET has been lifted. This decision comes as a relief to graduate and postgraduate instructors who were previously mandated to take the TET, an essential criterion for teaching roles across India.
The government's motive behind these adjustments is to accelerate the hiring of teachers within the region. In lieu of the traditional TET, the government will now implement the TET-cum-Recruitment Test for Graduate Teachers and Post-Graduate Teachers in secondary schools. Assam's Education Minister, Ranoj Pegu, confirmed through a tweet that the TET will no longer be obligatory for Graduate and Post Graduate Teachers at Secondary Schools in Assam. The new approach entails conducting the TET-cum-Recruitment Test specifically for GT and PGT positions in secondary schools within the state. The number of successful candidates will align with the available job openings.
Assam Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) Exam Pattern: The recent Assam Teachers Eligibility Test, which took place on April 30, targeted candidates aspiring to become lower primary and upper primary teachers. Each of the two exam papers lasted two and a half hours and comprised 150 multiple-choice questions. Visually impaired candidates were granted an additional 20 minutes. The selection of candidates will be in direct correlation with the number of vacant positions, as stated by the Assam cabinet.
This strategic decision holds the potential to attract highly qualified educators who can significantly influence the quality of education received by the state's young learners. The registration period for the Assam Special TET was open from March 5 to 25. Aspiring candidates are encouraged to refer to the official website for more comprehensive information.
This move is expected to streamline the state's teacher recruitment process while ensuring that deserving and qualified individuals have a fair opportunity to secure teaching positions. Further details regarding the TET-cum-recruitment test are expected to be released by the government in the near future.
