As per some reports, the Tamil Nadu Teacher Recruitment Board has announced the exam date for Polytechnic Lecturer exam. The reports suggest that the exam will be held on three dates in October, namely October 28, 29 and 30, 2021.
This pertains to the exam for selection to 1060 vacancies in the engineering and non-engineering department that were announced in year 2019. However it should be pointed out that at the time of publishing this story, no official notification on the TN TRB polytechnic lecturer exam date 2021 could be found.
If the reports on the exam date stand true, then the admit card of the exam can be expected in the second week of October.
At around 5 pm today, reports (rumors?) of the purported exam date started doing the rounds on social media. The initial source of the information appears to be a youtube video being portrayed as a news story. Job aspirants who had applied against the notification can start building up speed for the exam on the basis of this information, however for any other steps, one should wait for the official notice to be out.
