UPTET (UTTAR PRADESH TEACHER ELIGIBILITY TEST) is a QUALIFYING TEST.
14. The Court is concerned with questions where instead of option earlier shown correct by the Board, they have changed their view and another option has been treated to be correct. What the Board has done is that all the candidates who have answered revised option, the Board has awarded marks to them and option declared earlier correct but now incorrect, the marks awarded in respect thereof have been deducted. To my mind this approach of the Board to some extent has done more injustice. The Teachers Eligibility Test is a qualifying test without which a candidate would not be eligible for appointment as Assistant Teacher in Primary School in view of Regulations framed by the National Council for Teachers Education (hereinafter referred to as "NCTE") in exercise of power under Section 23 of Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009 (in short "Act, 2009"). 15. The general candidates securing 60% and above marks and reserved category candidates securing 55% and more marks are to be declared successful. It is per se not a competitive test. Inclusion of one shall not necessarily result in exclusion of another. If a candidate has already been declared successful on the basis of answers to respective questions in which options have now have been altered by the Board, and, on the basis of awarding of such marks he has been declared successful it would be unjust to declare him unsuccessful now if due to deduction of marks of such questions, the total marks secured by him earlier become lower than the prescribed pass marks. In my view the revised opinion of the Board in respect of such questions should not affect the result of candidates who have already been declared successful and they should remain untouched.
