NEW DELHI: The Assam education minister Ranoj Pegu on Wednesday announced that the state government has cancelled the Assam Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) for the next two years. The decision to not hold Assam TET exam was taken due to the sufficient number of TET-qualified candidates in the state, the minister said at a press conference.
“Assam TET exam will not be held for lower primary (LP) or upper primary (UP) for the next two years. The vacancies can be filled by the candidates who have already cleared the TET exam,” Pegu said.
He further said that the state government will now accept Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) scores for recruitment of teachers in the government schools.
Candidates who cleared the Assam DElEd exam can appear in the CTET exam instead of Assam TET in the next two years, he added.
Reacting to the announcement, some of the state students’ group requested the government to re-think the decision as many aspirants have been preparing for the Assam TET exam, as per reports.
Recently, the minister informed the state assembly that 2,900 schools in the state are run by single teachers. He also said that each of 15,161 educational institutes is run by two teachers, and 8,207 are three-teacher schools. All these were primary schools, and there were no secondary-level educational institutes in these categories, the PTI quoted Ranoj Pegu.
