Bihar TET 2017 will be conducted on June 11 and the process to fill online application form is currently underway. Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) has set up the official website www.bsebonline.net for carrying out the proceedings related to Bihar Teacher Eligibility Test (Bihar TET) and candidates can apply online at the same website.
The dates were announced on March 23, as per which the application process was due to commence on April 6. The Board has made the application process online completely and hence the candidates can only apply through the official Bihar TET website.
For a State which has been in limelight each year for cheating and other malpractices in the board exams, the smooth and transparent conduct of TET exam has become a matter of prestige much more than obligation. For checking malpractices in the Bihar TET exam, BSEB will introduce bar-coded answer sheets and biometric attendance will also be employed during the conduct of exam so as to eliminate the possibilities of impersonation.
Bihar government has approved the Teacher Eligibility Test after five years. The last test was conducted in State in the year 2012. Back in October 2016, the government had announced the dates for the test, but the same could not be implemented due to some administrative reasons. This time, however, the department has initiated the application process and owing to the long haul between the two tests, the test might witness record participation from the aspirants.
Bihar TET aims to determine the eligibility of a person to be employed as a teacher for Class I to VIII. The test comprises of two papers; Paper 1 for Classes I to V and Paper 2 for Classes VI to VIII. A candidate can apply for either or both the papers, depending on his/her eligibility. One major change done for Bihar TET 2017 is that only B.Ed. pass candidates can register for the test now.
The minimum age for Paper-1 has been set as 18 years, while that for Paper-2 is 21 years. The maximum age will remain 35/38 years for General Male/ Female candidates, 38 years for OBC Male & Female candidates and 40 years for SC, ST Male & Female candidates. The application fee is Rs. 400 for single paper and Rs. 600 for both the papers. For SC, ST candidates, the fee is Rs. 200 for single paper and Rs. 300 for both papers.
