By Express News Service - PUDUCHERRY
Federation of Diploma in Teacher Education (D T Ed) Unemployed Teachers Association on Thursday demanded cancellation of Teachers’ Eligibility Test (TET) re-examination stating that seven questions out a total of 150 had two or more correct answers. Secretary of the association S Krishnamurthy said the TET, conducted recently, should not be considered as a basis for recruitment as the seven questions created confusion even among well-prepared candidates. The answer key uploaded on the website clearly reveals the multiplicity of correct solutions, he added. Krishnamurthy further said the instructions suggested that there was only one correct answer to each of the 150 questions. Giving details, he said three questions in the child development and pedagogy section, one each in Tamil and environment science sections and two in English section had two or more correct answers. The TET, conducted by the Tamil Nadu Teachers Recruitment Board, is essential for recruitment of teachers in Puducherry and Karaikal.
