The Assam Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) 2021 exam was held from 8:30 pm to 11:00 pm and from 12:30 pm to 3:00 pm. Paper I was held for those interested in teaching Class 1-5 while Paper II was meant for candidates who wish to teach Class 6-8. Now that the exam has been successfully conducted, here are all details about answer key release, tentative result date, analysis, and many more.
Assam TET 2021 Answer Key Released
Immediately, after the conduction of Assam TET 2021 exam, several online portals and education websites released their memory-based answer keys. Answer keys have also been released in the video format on YouTube as well. But since they are unofficial, candidates can use them to calculate their tentative score. This score will differ from the actual one which will be calculated using the official answer key. Released date for official answer key is yet to be announced.
Candidates ought to know that the official answer key will be released on Assam TET’s portal ssa.assam.gov.in. If at all discrepancies are found, candidates will be given an opportunity to raise objections with proper reasoning and proof. Valid objections will be incorporated to release the final answer key later on. Last time, authorities had directly released the final answer key. However, candidates found several mistakes in the answer key and hence, with the help of subject-matter experts, the key was revised. A similar process may take place this time as well.
