But candidates must ensure that they’ve met all the other minimum eligibility requirements for appearing for the Super TET exam before filling the application form.
It is crucial that the candidates planning to apply for Super TET be aware of their opportunities after passing the Super TET exam. Candidates may have questions such as the scope after qualifying Super TET or the career options after the Super TET exam. But fret not! This article will help candidates learn more about the scope of Super TET and the teaching job profiles candidates can opt for after qualifying for the TET exam.
Scope of Super TET Exam
Super TET is one of the most honoured certifications for candidates in the teaching sector. The TET exam is conducted by the UP Basic Education Board (UPBEB) to hire passionate and deserving teachers for the state’s government schools. In addition, it is conducted to determine the intelligence of candidates with the aim to maintain and improve the quality of teaching by hiring only the best candidates. The UP Super TET exam is a second-level exam after qualifying for the first-level state exams.
Candidates must appear for this exam if they dream of being a teacher as there are tremendous opportunities in the sector. Earlier this year, the UP government announced recruitment for the post of primary teachers for nearly 69,000 vacancies. The Chief Minister of UP had ordered the Basic Education Department to make the recruitments towards providing job employment opportunities to today’s generations.
Teaching aspirants can grab this golden opportunity and fulfill their dream of becoming government teachers. However, the UP state government has also issued a notice that the candidates in the general category must score 65%, and candidates in backward/reserved categories must score 60% as a minimum percentage for qualifying in the Super TET exam. The qualified candidates are then provided with the certificate of Super TET after the results of the exam.
Further, the final selection for the post of UP assistant teacher will incorporate various other parameters including,
- 10% of the total percentage acquired in high school, intermediate, and graduation
- Teacher training certificate
- 65/60% weightage of the Super TET exam (written)
So, the overall cut-off will be based on marks acquired in the Super TET written exam and academic marks weightage of previous studies.
Career Opportunities after Super TET
Ultimately, all that matters is the salary structure and the future growth opportunities for one’s career. After a candidate qualifies for the Super TET exam, they can apply for assistant teacher positions in UP government schools. Even fresh candidates can apply for the post. But for the position of Principal of a school, the candidate will require teaching experience of 5 years. Teachers can also obtain great future growth opportunities after the role of assistant teacher, which we will talk about later in the article.
