Junior Inter students leaving for their homes after the first year examinations in Vijayawada n TET notification will be on on Thursday.

HYDERABAD: Postponing the DSc examination to August 26, the state government has even allowed candidates who are going to complete their BEd and DEd at the end of this academic year to appear for DSc after clearing TET to be held on May 31.

As half of the 4.5 lakh BEd and DEd candidates, who appeared for Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) on January 8 failed, the candidates have been demanding of the government to either cancel the TET or decrease the cut off marks, so as to provide them the eligibility to appear for DSc.

Speaking to mediapersons here on Thursday, minister for secondary education Kolusu Parthasarthi said that NCTE (National Council for Teachers’ Education) guidelines did not permit them to accept either of the candidates’ demand.

But, as chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy was firm on providing another opportunity to failed candidates, they have decided to conduct another TET examination on May 31.

As the government decision to allow the fresh candidates to appear for TET, about 70,000 persons, including BEd and DEd will get a chance to compete for the DSc notification.

As they have decided to conduct another TET before DSc, he said that they have postponed the DSc to August 26, 27 and 28 from the present scheduled date of May 2,3 and 4.

The candidates who cleared the last TET also can compete for the forthcoming TET to improve their scores.

Parthasarathi said that they would not postpone the model school teacher recruitment test. The Trained Graduate Teacher (TGT) posts in the notification require clearing of TET eligibility test.
