The UPTET and CTET exam dates might clash this year putting candidates aspiring to appear for both the exam in a tricky situation. As the UPTET exam got canceled last November, the new dates of UPTET Exams might clash with the existing dates of the CTET exam. A huge number of candidates aspire to attempt both exams one after the other.
The Uttar Pradesh Basic Education Board (UPBEB) has not yet announced the news date for Uttar Pradesh Teachers Eligibility Test (UPTET). Earlier the UPTET Exam 2021 was scheduled for 28th November 2021, however, due to the paper leak, the exam was called off. This left the aspiring candidates disappointed. The UPBEB has announced the UPTET exam will be re-schedule after 1 month i.e last week of December 2021. THE UPBEB also confirmed that the candidates do not have to pay any fees again for the exams.
With this development, the candidates who were preparing for UPTET along with CTET (Central Teachers Eligibility Test) exam have left candidates in a pickle. As the CTET exam 2021 is supposed to be held between 16th December 2021 to 13th January 2021, chances are that the dates for both the exams might clash. The aspirants are growing more apprehensive of the situation as the days pass. Until the UPBEB declares the new date for the UPTET Exam 2021, the candidates will remain uncertain about their predicament.
The UPTET Exam Paper-I got leaked and went viral on WhatsApp groups in Mathura, Bulandshahr, and Ghaziabad. The STF has conducted raids and detained many people from Ghaziabad, Meerut, and Prayagraj. STF is further investigating the matter to nab the main culprits behind the leaked paper.
The CTET and UPTET are very popular eligibility tests among the candidates aspiring to become teachers in government schools. The certificate awarded for qualifying in CTET and UPTET exams is valid for life.
As the UPTET exam 2021 has been postponed by 1 month, the UPTET and CTET exam date might clash with each other. This will put the candidates planning to appear for both the exams in dilemma. The candidates will have to face uncertainty until the UPBEB announced the final UPTET exam dates 2021.
