After receiving permission for relaxation, TRBT conducted a test in October 20, 2019 (Paper-1) and October 26, 2019 (Paper-2)”.

“For TET-1 total 76,477 candidates appealed and appeared 65047 candidates. TRBT announced results but only 428 students could pass out. Result is bad ! This exam was to identify teachers who will teach (Class-1 to Class-5)”, said Nath.  Click TIWN YouTube Link to see Ratanlal Nath's press meet
