A total of 1,24,434 candidates registered for Paper II (meant for secondary school teachers), out of which only 7,078 students cleared the test.
Candidates in the English medium performed the worst with a disappointing pass percentage of 2.23, followed by Urdu medium with 3.23, and Marathi medium with 5.9 pass percentage.
The abysmal plight of education in the state has been laid bare once again as the results of Paper II of the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) showed a mere 5.69 pass percentage, which means that only about one in 20 candidates who appeared for the test were able to clear it.
A total of 1,24,434 candidates registered for Paper II (meant for secondary school teachers), out of which only 7,078 students cleared the test. The test is conducted in three mediums. Candidates in the English medium performed the worst with a disappointing pass percentage of 2.23, followed by Urdu medium with 3.23 pass percentage, and Marathi medium with 5.9 pass percentage. Paper I of TET was cancelled after the paper leak case. A re-examination was scheduled initially on May 18, but officials later said that the date is yet to be decided.
As per the Right to Education Act, 2009, all states have to conduct TET for recruitment of teachers for all types of schools and only those candidates who have qualified the exam are eligible for teaching jobs. However, since it’s introduction, TET results have been consistently low. While this year saw a slight improvement compared to 4.16 pass percentage last year, but even then the improvement was not on par with the pass rate of Central Teachers Eligibility Test (CTET) conducted by CBSE, which was also started in 2011.
Ask officials why the results continue to be dismal and they blame various factors. “I think the basic difference is that our candidates are not used to application-based questions. Even if all the questions come from the secondary school syllabus, these are not straight questions and are often based on understanding. I think candidates must try to study the subjects from the point of view of their applicability,” said RV Godhane, commissioner, Maharashtra State Council of Examinations (MSCE) which conducts TET.
A senior official of Maharash-tra State Council of Educational Research and Training (MSCERT) blamed the quality of teaching in D.Ed and B.Ed colleges in the state. “The standard of teaching in these colleges is very poor and this is why candidates are ill prepared,” he said.
However, principals of teaching colleges do not agree with the assessment. Sujata Adamuthe, principal, Arihanta College of Education, said most candidates complained of the exam being too ‘content oriented’.
“In B.ED colleges, we don’t just focus on the syllabus. Other aspects like psychology and teaching methodologies are given equal importance. The content or syllabus gets sharpened on the job and that’s why it would be better if objective-type questions in TET focused on other aspects besides syllabus-oriented questions,” Adamuthe said.
