The School Education Department  on Thursday issued a G O to give effect to the announcement made by Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on February 3 in the State Assembly that five per cent relaxation of marks would be given to the students belonging to the reserved categories, for passing the Tamil Nadu Teachers Eligibility Test (TET). She also said the relaxation of marks would apply to the TET held on August 17 and 18, 2013. 

The maximum marks fixed for Paper I and Paper II of the TET is 150 each and the pass percentage was fixed at 60 per cent (i.e., 90 marks out of 150 marks). 

The five per cent relaxation of marks would mean that the students belonging to the SC/STs, BCs, BCs (Muslims), MBCs, Denotified Communities and Persons with Disability need to score only 82 marks out of 150.  Though 55 per cent of 150 marks is calculated as 82.5 per cent, it has been rounded off to 82 marks, the GO said. However, general category candidates have to score 60 per cent of marks (i.e., 90 out of 150 to clear the TET).
