Vijayawada: The Andhra Pradesh Government is likely to hold TET once again. A notification would be issued in May and the online exam would be conducted in June. Soon after the TET process is completed, DSC would be held.
Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao took this decision after complaints galore about the errors in the TET exam. Due to the errors, many students could not qualify in the test. As many as 1356 persons complained that they could not find 5 questions in the paper due to technical problems.
As many as 30591 candidates paid Rs 200 each to get their answer sheets. But they were not given any opportunity to raise objections. In view of the legal issues, the government has decided to hold another TET. Many candidates have objected to the cut-off marks. While the cut off marks for the assistant professor posts is 40 per cent, the same for TET is 60 per cent, they said.
Meanwhile doubts are being expressed by the selected candidates that the re-exam was a ruse on the part of the Government to delay the filling of vacancies. During the last four years, DSC was organized only once, they point out.
