Agartala, April 7: The Teachers’ Recruitment Board of Tripura (TRBT) did not take initiative to give correct starmarks even after the mistake in the TET exam question paper.
TET examinations was conducted on December 29 and 30 last with the initiative of TRBT. There were several mistakes in spellings of the question papers. At the end of the exam, the candidates brought the matter to the attention of TRBT several times.
The Controller of Examinations of TRBT assured them that all these matters will be verified through experts. Altogether, 22 questions were challenged in TET-I and 31 questions in TET-II.
But on Thursday, TRBT released the final answer sheets. The board gave a star mark in one question in the TET-I exam paper. And out of 31 papers in TET-II, four papers in arts section gave star marks. In this situation, TRBT did not award star marks to extra-syllabus question papers. Then there are spelling mistakes in the answer sheet. No star marks were given for that either. TRBT released the final key without resolving these three issues.
The candidates demanded that these problems be solved during the publication of the final answer key. They said this at a press conference at Agartala Press Club on Friday. 8 star marks were given in 2018 and 9 star marks in 2021. They questioned why they are being deprived.
The TET candidates appealed to the Chief Minister to consider the matter seriously. The so-called upcoming teachers demand that they should be given star marks for answering extra-syllabus questions. Otherwise they will be deprived. That is what they demand.
