Punjab State Education Board (PSEB) was expected to release the PSTET 2021 answer key yesterday, December 30, 2021, as informed on the official website pstet.pseb.ac.in. However, 24 hours have passed and yet, there is no sign of answer key or question paper on the official portal. Candidates who appeared for the Punjab State Teacher Eligibility Test (PSTET) 2021 are confused about whether the answer key will take more time to be released.
To reason out the delay, they have been incessantly asking teachers and instructors online, by commenting under their YouTube videos. However, even teachers and subject-experts are clueless about this unceremonious delay. PSEB is yet to provide any reason justifying the delay in the release of the PSTET 2021 answer key.
The state eligibility test was conducted through the pen-and-paper mode on December 24, 2021. On the same day itself, several online coaching institutes released their memory-based answer keys in two formats – 1. PDF format on the coaching institute’s website and 2. Video format on YouTube channel. Candidates could make use of these unofficial sources to check their answers and determine their PSTET 2021 exam scores. However, they were still waiting for the official answer key release.
A few days later, PSEB issued a public notice announcing the released date for the provisional answer key and question paper. According to this notice, the provisional draft would be published on the official website on December 30, 2021. In case of any objections or grievances against the answer key, candidates could avail the grievance facility to submit their objections.
The PSTET 2021 grievance facility was to remain open till January 02, 2022. However, certain fee charges would be applicable to submit their objections. Later on, PSEB would take these objections into consideration to release the final answer key and result. All candidates made note of these instructions and waited ardently for the answer key, only for the release date to get postponed without any reasoning.
To clear out the confusion, candidates are asking online educators and coaching institutes about the PSTET 2021 answer key delay., by commenting under their videos. These comments are especially evident under videos that explain the grievance facility.
Although there is no answer to evaporate this confusion, candidates are advised to visit the PSTET 2021 official website frequently to keep up with any new announcement or update. They are also advised to stay calm as PSEB is likely to release the answer key in the next few days. The grievance facility dates will also be modified accordingly.
