UPTET 2021 result withheld for 20,000 candidates having DElEd degree from NIOS: Report
The Examination Regulatory Authority withheld UPTET result 2021 for nearly 20,000 candidates who passed DElEd from NIOS.
NEW DELHI: The Examination Regulatory Authority, Uttar Pradesh, has withheld the Uttar Pradesh Teacher Eligibility Test (UPTET) 2021 result of nearly 20,000 candidates who completed their Diploma in Elementary Education (DElEd) course from the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS), as per a Times of India report. On the orders of the Allahabad High Court, these candidates were allowed to appear in the UPTET examination, however their result has been withheld, the report said. UPTET result 2021 was declared on April 8.
Following the Allahabad HC’s orders, the office of the ERA had reportedly given permission to 20,000 such candidates to take the UPTET 2021 exam, but when the result was announced, their result was displayed as 'Court Case', said the TOI report. The Authority is now going to appeal against the court’s decision. The permission has also been sought from the state government for challenging the order, according to reports.
After the decision of the Patna High Court, NIOS considered the candidates under training to be eligible for Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) and teacher recruitment, after which these students sat in the UPTET exam, but when the result came, the exam regulatory authority's office slapped a court case on their results, as per some reports. ERA is now going to appeal against the decision of the court in the double bench, the reports suggested.
Nearly 39 percent of the candidates have passed at the primary level, and 28 percent of the candidates have passed in the upper primary. At the primary level, 4,43, 598 candidates have been declared passed. Whereas, 2,16,994 candidates have passed at the upper primary level.
Around 12,91,628 candidates had registered for primary level while 8,73,553 had registered for upper primary level in UPTET exam 2021. For primary level, 11,47,090 candidates appeared whereas for the upper primary level examination, 7,65,921 appeared.
The final UPTET 2021 answer key was released online on April 7. The UPTET exam 2021-22 was concluded on January 23, 2022, successfully in a pen and paper-based mode. The UPTET 2021 exam was conducted in 75 districts at 4,365 examination centres in Uttar Pradesh.
