In the case of Upper Primary, TET test number 150 will be taken in the first step. In the second step, 50 + 50 will be taken above the total 100 marks in Bengali and English big questions. In the third stage, thematic examination will be taken above 100 marks. Note that even if a total of 150 marks are taken, the TET weightage will be 100. That means the total assessment will be within 300 marks.
In case of Upper Ninth-Twelfth, PT test of 150 marks will be taken in the first step. In the second stage, 50 + 50 will be tested for big questions in Bengali and English above 100 marks. In the third stage there is a subject based examination of 100 marks. In this case also TET weightage will be taken 100 in spite of the total number of 150 test. That means the total assessment will be within 300 marks.
All the candidates can sit for the examination consisting of three stages. However, in the case of Upper Primary and Ninth-Twelfth Class, if the marks obtained in the TET Examinations exceed the minimum prescribed marks, the answer sheets of the remaining examinations will be evaluated. Again, in case of ninth-twelfth, if the PT examination scores more than the minimum prescribed number, the answer sheet of the remaining examination will be evaluated.
In the case of teacher recruitment, no interview procedure is being followed this time. There are no resources for academic scores. In a word, the numbers obtained at the secondary, higher secondary, undergraduate, and postgraduate levels have no significance in the recruitment process.
