Uttar Pradesh Teacher Eligibility Test (UPTET) Exam

The Teacher Eligibility Test, known as TET, is the minimum qualification required in India for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher for Classes I to VIII. The test is mandatory for teaching jobs in Indian government schools. There are two papers: Paper 1, for teachers of Classes I to V, and Paper 2 for Classes VI to VIII. The TET is conducted both by the central and state governments of India. Most states conduct their own TET. The test is conducted to meet the objectives of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009.

History

The Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) was introduced by the Government of India in 2011 to improve standards in teaching. Teachers already working were expected to pass the exam within two years.

Uttar Pradesh Teacher Eligibility Test (UPTET) is a state-level exam conducted once a year for the recruitment of primary (Classes 1-5) and upper primary (Classes 6-8) level teachers in the schools of Uttar Pradesh. Every year, Uttar Pradesh Basic Education Board (UPBEB) conducts the UPTET exam. However, in 2019 Exam Regulatory Authority, Uttar Pradesh released the UPTET notification on its official website - http://updeled.gov.in. 

Over 15 lakh candidates appear for UPTET exam every year. In 2019, total 16,34,249 candidates registered while 15,14,716 appeared for the exam. In 2018, total 18.25 lakh candidates registered while about 17 lakh students appeared for the exam. 

UPTET exam is conducted in two shifts for two papers - I and II. UPTET paper-I is conducted for candidates who plan to become teachers of Classes 1-5. On the other hand, UPTET paper-II is for candidates who plan to become teachers of Classes 6-8. Candidates who wish to become teachers of Classes 1-8 need to appear in both the papers. Both the UPTET papers are conducted on the same day in offline mode as pen-and-paper based tests. 

Candidates who qualify UPTET exam are eligible for recruitment as primary or upper-primary (also called middle school) level teachers in the schools of Uttar Pradesh. The qualifying candidates receive their UPTET eligibility certificate in due course after the declaration of result. The UPTET eligibility certificate is valid for a period of five years.
