New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has come out with a fresh announcement with regard to the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) conducted on February 21 earlier this year.
While the exam was held across the country on that date, the test was postponed in Haryana due to, in CBSE's words, “administrative reasons”.
It may be noted that the northern state was in the midst of a violent Jat agitation when the CTET Feb 2016 exam was held.
Now, the Board has announced the date of examination for candidates who had applied for CTET in Haryana.
The CTET for Haryana candidates will be conducted on May 8, 2016 (Sunday).
“The Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) - 21st February, 2016 (SUNDAY) was postponed in Haryana State owing to administrative reasons. The fresh date i.e. 8th May, 2016 (SUNDAY) is fixed for examination for the candidates of State of Haryana. It may kindly be noted by all the stakeholders concerned,” the CBSE said in a public notice posted on the CTET website.
While the notice is dated 07.04.16, it was published on the website either late on Tuesday or early Wednesday.
The announcement of the date for Haryana candidates is also good news for other candidates who had appeared for the exam in February.
They have been eagerly waiting for their results which should otherwise have been announced by now.
Even the CBSE had stated in its original notification that the results for the CBSE Feb 2016 would be announced on or before April 06, 2016.
The CBSE had later confirmed to Zeenews.com that the results for the CTET conducted on February 21 this year have been delayed.
In response to a question 'when will the CTET Feb 2016 results be declared', the CBSE had told Zeenews.com earlier this month, “CTET answer key and result will be uploaded on the www.ctet.nic.in. You may check the website regularly.”
The Board has so far not released the answer keys as well as OMR sheets for candidates outside Haryana. Earlier, the Board used to publish answer keys within a few days of the exam.
Candidates are advised to keep checking the official CTET website – ctet.nic.in – for further information regarding conduct of the exam in Haryana and the publication of answer keys, OMR sheets and results.
