The Uttar Pradesh Teacher Eligibility Test (UP TET) has been successfully conducted on January 23, 2022. Soon after the completion of the exam, the official answer key was released on January 27, 2022, against which candidates were allowed to submit objections and representations. Now, as per a newspaper article released today, it was found that a total of 54 questions from Primary and 44 questions from the Upper Primary levels were met with objections.
Not only that but the Examination Regulatory Authority received as many as 3000 objections all total. These objections will now be reviewed by the PNP experts after which the final answer key is going to be released on February 23, 2022. It is expected that the UP TET result 2022 will be announced on February 25, 2022.
Candidates had to pay Rs 500 for each question they desired to challenge. According to experts on YouTube, it is quite genuine that there have been problems with the provisional answer key due to which candidates had to submit so many responses. They have also added that out of the 54 questions from the Primary level, nearly 13 questions were repeated from previous years. These questions were also put up for objections after which compensated marks were given for them.
What do experts say?
According to them, it is very likely for the candidates to receive marks for nearly 10 questions of the total number of objections in the Primary level exam. However, an official update in this regard is expected to be out once the final answer keys are published. Combining both levels of the exam, nearly 100 objections have been received.
Candidates, on the other hand, have claimed that as many as 100 questions have been simply copied from the UPTET 2017 question paper. A rough idea of the number of questions that were repeated is given below.
- Child Development and Pedagogy – 13
- Math – 17
- Environmental Studies – 20
- Hindi – 23
- Sanskrit – 23
- Urdu – 30
Being such a high-profile profile examination, there has been a careless preparation of the question paper, as per the candidates. They even reached out to the social media site Twitter and posted their concerns over this question repetition issue. According to some candidates, this alleged repetition almost equates to a paper leak. It is expected that after the committee reviews the objections, there will be an official update about whether the students will be given marks for the concerning questions or not.
