Madras HC directs teachers recruitment board to conduct re-examination


HC asks Board to conduct re-examination
The Madras High Court bench here today asked the teachers' recruitment board to consider the possibility of conducting re-examination for Post Graduate Assistants (Tamil) in view of the large number of mistakes in the question paper.

When the case came up for hearing, Chairman of the Teachers' Recruitment Board Vibu Nayyar appeared before the court.


Justice Nagamuthu pointed out that 8002 candidates had been given B-series question papers wherein one third of the questions were found to be erroneous with spelling mistakes.

He was hearing a petition filed by one Vijayalakshmi who submitted that there 47 vital errors in the question papers and it was duty of the Secretary of the Teachers Recruitment Board to either award marks for mere attempt or conduct examinations afresh.

"If there are one or two errors it is okay even according to the Supreme court. But we cannot accept 30 mistakes in a question paper", he said.

When the Additional Advocate General said that if re-examination had to be held then they should seek the government's view, the judge posted the case for hearing on September 24.
