The Jharkhand Teacher Eligibility Test (JTET) result 2016 has been declared. Jharkhand Academic Council (JAC) on Friday morning published the JTET result 2016 at it’s web portal (ww.jac.nic.in).
The results of Jharkhand TET 2016 have been published separately for level 1 and level 2 exams. Candidates can find the PDF here for both L1 and L2. The URL to check JAC JTET result 2016 is (http://jac.nic.in/TET%20RESULT2016.htm) which is accessible now.
The details of candidates’ marks scored in the exam, post applied for, category and language etc can be found in the result PDF.
In Level 1, a total 88,735 candidates had registered for JTET 2016. Out of which, only the result of 77,403 candidates have been published.
In Level 2, a total of 1,60,841 candidates had sent their applications for Jharkhand TET. However, the result of only 1,40,970 candidates has been displayed online.
The results of rest of the 11,332 Level 1 candidates and 19,871 Level 2 candidates have not been published; reasons being any out of the “Invalid or Blank Roll No / Blank Test Booklet Set / Blank Subject Choice / Damaged OMR / Not Appeared”.
As per reports, around 2.52 lakh candidates had registered to take the Jharkhand TET exam which has held in 2016 after four years. In 2012, the last time when JTET was held, a total of 1.6 lakh candidates had appeared. JTET 2016 was organised across 500 centres in the state.
In 2016, JTET was conducted on November 20. The exam for Level 1 (classes I-V) aspirants was held in the morning shift from 10 am to 12:30 pm and for the Level 2 )classes VI-VIII) aspirants, the exam timing was 1:30 pm to 4 pm. About 90 thousand had applied for Level 1 and about 1.5 lakh took Level 2 test.
The council has set the minimum marks required to qualify JTET on 60 percent for unreserved categories while the same for SC/ST/Physically challenged candidates has been set at 52 percent. Only the candidates who will obtain marks as per this criteria will be awarded TET eligible certificate.
However, now the candidates won’t have to wait for another 4 years to appear for JTET as state government has said that from now onward, TET will be held every year. The move has been taken to fill-up the huge number of teachers’ posts lying vacant in the schools. Around 7 thousand seats are currently vacant in government schools in the state and the government has said that it will be recruiting teachers on 10 thousand more posts.
The council had released the answer keys for JTET 2016 earlier but you can access them here anyways.
