HYDERABAD: The state government is considering two options to provide a chance to candidates who had failed to clear the Teachers Eligibility Test for the District Selection Committee exam.
The government was forced to consider the alternative options following protests from failed candidates. Out of the 5 lakh candidates who appeared for the exam conducted on January 8, around 2.5 lakh had failed to qualify. As the next TET exam is scheduled to be held in June and the DSC in the first week of May, the government is contemplating to postpone the DSC exam and bring forward the TET. Another option is allowing all candidates to write the DSC and ask them to clear the next TET to be held in June. In this case, the DSC results will be announced after the TET results, as the latter marks have 20 percent weightage in the former.
Minister for secondary education Kolusu Parthasarathi said they are studying whether the rules permit them for doing so.
