After introduction of Aadhaar enabled verification of candidates appearing in the Haryana Teachers Eligibility Test (HTET) last year, not even 1% of the aspirants taking the level-3 exam for selection as postgraduate teachers (PGT) could qualify it.
According to the figures provided by the Board of School Education, Haryana (BSEH) on Thursday, only 0.83% of them managed to clear the examination held on December 23, 2017.
The board chairperson, Jagbir Singh said, “It was for the first time that CCTV cameras were installed in classrooms leaving no scope of any irregularities that used to occur earlier, like getting help from staff on duty.”
The BSEH said qualified candidates would be awarded a certificate by the board.
Jagbir added, those who had failed could appear again for the HTET exam in November 17-18.
The result of HTET was delayed this time because of incomplete Aadhaar based biometric attendance. The BSEH had issued a notification saying that the board would announce the result only after completing the Aadhaar-based biometric attendance of all candidates.
