As predicted by several news portals, the AP TET 2022 official notification is soon going to release online. In fact, the Directorate of School Education, Andhra Pradesh, will be issuing the notification on the official website cse.ap.gov.in. However, an exact date for notification release has not been disclosed. Since the month of March 2022 only has 1-2 days left, it is safe to assume that the document will come out in April 2022.
