Bihar STET 2022 Exam: Bihar government has announced the cancellation of Bihar STET 2022 exam with immediate effect. The government has now decided not to conduct the state level teacher eligibility test. Instead, the recruitment of teachers in the state will be done through CTET.
The Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) is conducted twice a year in all the states. According to the government, through this it is proving enough to meet the needs of the state for qualified teachers.
Bihar Director of Primary Education, in a letter to the Bihar School Examination Committee, said that the center is regularly conducting the CTET exam, so the department has decided not to conduct the STET exam 2022.
If we look at the previous data, the first Bihar STET exam was conducted in 2011 for teacher recruitment in Bihar. Since then it has been held only twice. The last time it was conducted in the state was in 2017.
Bihar STET qualified candidates are still waiting for their appointment. The decision to abolish Bihar STET comes just ahead of the proposed seventh phase of recruitment of teachers in Bihar. CTET-BTET qualified candidates were protesting against the delay in recruitment.
