After much wait and anticipation, the Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) has announced the PSTET 2022 result. Each candidate has been issued a separate mark sheet which can be accessed on the official website pstet.pseb.ac.in. The mark sheet specifies whether or not a candidate has qualified the eligibility test. To qualify the test, a candidate needs to clear his/her category cut-off. Interestingly, while the result took time to release, PSEB had announced the passing marks days ahead. This figure essentially determines the qualifying status of a candidate.
The PSTET examination was successfully conducted at selected centres across the country, on December 24, 2021. Results were supposed to come out in January 2022. However, they were delayed by two months owing to unknown reasons.
PSTET 2022 – Category-Wise Passing Percentage & Marks
To qualify the PSTET 2022 examination, candidates need to score equal to above their category cut-off. According to the PSEB, the cut-off has been defined for two categories – reserved and unreserved. For each category, the state education board has defined the passing percentage and passing marks.
In the case of the unreserved category, the passing percentage is 60% corresponding to 90 marks. Similarly, the passing percentage for the reserved category of 55% corresponds to 85 marks.
Following is a table summarising the passing marks –

Candidates who score equal to or above the passing percentage will be deemed ‘provisionally qualified’ for the teaching certificate. Such candidates will then, have to undergo document verification to ascertain their final eligibility. After successfully doing so, candidates will be awarded the teaching certificate, enabling them to teach at affiliated schools in Punjab.
