Nearly16,000 candidates appeared for Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) at 42 centres in Ludhiana on Saturday. After examinations, the candidates said the exam for social studies was tough.
The exam was held in two shifts, morning shift for secondary teachers and evening shift for primary teachers. The centre for disabled candidates was at Vishwakarma School.
Deep Raja, a candidate who appeared at a centre in Khanna, said, “The exam of social studies was tough. I appeared for TET examination in the year 2011. Many of the candidates, who had cleared this exam in 2011, appeared again.”
Amrita, whose centre was at Ryan International School said, “The exam was tough. We had a hope of getting the carbon copy of our OMR sheets, but this time this facility was not provided.”
The district education officer (secondary) Paramjit Kaur said, “95 % students appeared for the test in the district. I visited various centres and everything was fine.”
