Uttar Pradesh Examinations Regulatory Authority (UPERA) has announced the results for the UP Junior Aided Selection Exam 2021. Results have been announced on the official website updeled.gov.in. The recruitment exam was held on October 17, 2021, against a total of 1,504 vacancies under the post of Assistant Teacher. Additionally, this recruitment exam also aims at filling up 390 vacancies under the post of headmaster across 3,049 government-aided junior high schools in the state.
To check their UPJASE 2021 results, candidates need to visit the official website of UPERA i.e., updeled.gov.in. On the homepage of the website, they must click on the “UPJASE-2021 Result” link under the “important” section given on the left side. By doing so, a new page will open asking for login credentials. These include Registration Number, Password, and Captcha Code.
After entering these credentials, candidates must click on the ‘Login’ option to check their UPJASE 2021 results. As per official sources, 16.69% of the 2,71,066 candidates who applied for the position of assistant teacher have cleared the recruitment exam. Similarly, 11.53% of 14,928 aspirants applying for the headmaster’s position have also been declared qualified.
Around the same time as announcing the UPJASE 2021 results, UPERA also specified the cut-off marks for various categories. Accordingly, candidates belonging to the unreserved category must score a minimum of 65% marks to pass the exam. However, those belonging to reserved categories must score at least 60% marks to get shortlisted for the next round.
Candidates who have qualified for the recruitment exam are only provisionally selected. They will now have to appear for the next stage of the UPJASE 2021 selection process i.e., the interview round. As of now, UPERA officials have not provided any specific dates for conducting the interview session. Hence, candidates must continuously visit the official website for the latest announcements in this regard. They can also keep track of their registered mobile number and email ID for any intimation about the interview round.
UPERA for the first time in history, conducted a written exam for recruiting assistant teachers and headmasters in government-funded junior high schools. Previously, managers in different schools in congruence with the Basic Shiksha Adhikaris (BSAs) would appoint candidates to these positions. Of course, these positions would be occupied through illicit means such as paying bribes.
After noticing these illicit means, the government decided on introducing a written recruitment examination. This decision was announced by the Allahabad High Court during the Shubham Kumar Shukla vs the State of Uttar Pradesh case.
