(News) Only 5% cleared Tamil Nadu TET Exam 2013


Tamil Nadu Teacher Eligibility Test (TET)

With less than 5 per cent of teachers in the state clearing the teacher eligibility test (TET), questions are now being raised about the quality of teachers and the fate of children in schools. Teachers recruitment board (TRB) released the results for TET on Tuesday.

The results have rung an alarm bell among teachers and parents in the state as the parents fear for the quality of teaching and the teachers are apprehensive of losing their job if they don’t clear the exams within five years.

Of the 2.62 lakh teacher aspirants who wrote paper-I, only 4.80 per cent (12,596) scored 60 per cent and above to crack the test and in paper-II, 3.62 per cent (14,496), among 4 lakh, passed the test.

“It is shocking to hear the news about the results as less than 5 per cent have cleared the exam.

I think teachers need to get back to classrooms to get themselves updated with the latest in their subjects,” opined Ms V. Bharathi, a parent.
