Bihar government announced on Tuesday that the Secondary Teachers Eligibility Test (STET) Exam 2022 has been canceled with immediate effect.
In a written letter sent to Bihar School Examination Committee, the Bihar Primary Education Director stated that the Centre is regularly conducting the CTET exams, so the department has decided not to conduct the STET exam in 2022.
Notably, this decision has been taken given the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) which is conducted every year by the Central government.
Because of the same, the Bihar government decided that there is no need of conducting the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) separately from the state government as every year the central government is already holding the Teacher Eligibility Test. As per the letter from the Bihar Primary Education Director, the Bihar government stated that the decision will be taken after considering the need-based Teacher Eligibility Test (TET). The Ministry of Education has given the responsibility of conducting the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) to the Central Board of Secondary Education Delhi.
