Barring minor complaints of the missing roll numbers and mismatch of photographs of candidates on admit card, the Punjab State Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) passed off peacefully.
The Punjab School Education Board, which conducted the test, received seven complaints from all over the state, including mismatch of the photograph of the candidate on the admit card with that of the candidate and about the roll number not being traced.
The board received a complaint about registration of a case against a man who was selling a fake question paper to aspirants. The accused was nabbed at Rampura Phul in the morning.
The candidates of the evening paper, which was meant for recruiting teachers for Classes 6 to 8, complained that the first half of the question paper was tough. “The examination went off well, barring a case registered against a man who was selling a fake question paper. About 1.73 lakh candidates appeared at 333 centres across Punjab,” said education board chairperson Tejinder Kaur Dhaliwal.
