Following Calcutta High Court’s order, the West Bengal Board of Primary Education (WBBPE) has on September 14, that is, today published the results of Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) for recruitment of primary teachers.
“The court had earlier put a stay order on releasing the results and after the verdict came we immediately published the results,” board president Manik Bhattacharya said. A little over 20 lakh candidates had appeared for the TET exam on October 11 last year for recruitment of around 30,000 vacancies for primary teachers in West Bengal.
What else is in news
The results of the examination could not be published owing to litigations by some candidates who challenged certain provisions of which one was the inclusion of non-trained candidates for teaching jobs.
