TNTET : Less than 3% teachers clear test
In a shocking statement on the quality of the future generation of teachers, less than 3 per cent of those who took the Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) have passed.
Results released by the state teachers' recruitment board (TRB) on Friday show that only about 19,200 (2.93 per cent) of the 6.56 lakh candidates who took the test in October got through.
Diehard optimists can, however, take cheer that the performance this time is “hugely better“ than the less than 1 per cent scored by the TET candidates in the previous test held in July. That shocking result had led the state government to direct the TRB to hold a re-examination, resulting in the October exercise. “The candidates have fared terribly. We must be very worried about the quality of the graduates coming into the teaching profession. It appears that many are straying into this area after getting rejected in other careers,“ said Shanthi, an administrator of a private school.
Rajesh, a secondary gr ade teacher aspirant who took mathematics, said that the papers were not difficult, except for Tamil.
“Most of the teachers who took the examination felt it to be relatively easy compared to their previous attempt,“ said Rajesh.
Sources in TRB said that 10,397 primary school teacher aspirants had cleared the examination, for which there were only 7,000 posts, while only 8,849 candidates had qualified in the test for graduate teachers where 20,000 posts lie vacant. number mismatch As many as 10,397 primary school teacher aspirants, for which there were only 7,000 posts, had cleared the examination For graduate teachers, for which as many as 20,000 posts lie vacant, only 8,849 candidates had cleared the test
