TNTET : Tamil Nadu Teacher Eligibility Test takers worried over receipt of examination tickets
TRICHY: With the Teachers' Recruitment Board dispatching hall tickets to aspirants for the Tamil Nadu Teacher Eligibility Test (TNTET) scheduled on July 12, as many as 600 aspirants thronged the district educational offices (DEO) in Trichy and Musiri educational districts to confirm whether they would actually get their examination tickets on time.
A team of officials led by director of the TRB, A Shankar, visited the DEOs in Trichy and Musiri to meet aspirants in order to clarify their doubts about the examination.
Since the state government conducts the TNTET to shortlist eligible candidates for recruitment as teachers in schools, aspirants are supposed to take up the examination. The tests will be conducted separately for Diploma in Teacher Education (D.Ted) holders (Paper-I) and Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) candidates (Paper-II) on July 12. In Trichy, there are three educational districts namely Trichy, Musiri and Lalgudi.
Of the three educational districts, Trichy educational district topped the list with 21,239 eligible candidates including 8,136 for Paper-I and 13,103 for Paper-II. The number of applicants eligible to take up the exam in Musiri are 6,423 including 2,674 (Paper-I) and 3,749 (Paper-II). In Lalgudi, there are 3,468 candidates including 1,508 (Paper-I) and 1,960 (Paper-II).
Earlier, the TRB received filled-in applications through the DEOs of each educational district of the state from March 22 to April 12 this year. But many applications were incomplete. Hence the TRB had to reject 71 applications across the state, of which two applications were rejected from Trichy educational district.
Meanwhile, the TRB started dispatching hall-tickets to aspirants a few days back. As many of them did not receive hall-ticket, they got worried and thronged the DEO to clear their doubts.
When Shankar met the 350-odd aspirants in the Trichy DEO, the candidates asked whether all of them would receive the hall-ticket on time.
In reply, he promised that they would get the hall-ticket before the examination. Otherwise, they could download a confirmation about their eligibility to take up the test from the website. Then, they should affix their photograph which should be attested by a gazetted officer which can then serve as a hall ticket.
In Musiri DEO, more than 250 candidates turned out to meet the director. They were also worried over obtaining hall-tickets. However, Shankar assured them that they would get the hall-tickets before Saturday.
